|A World Waiting to be Discovered|
|James R. Girvin, HMC (FMF/DV/FPJ), USNR|
| Open the door and come into a world waiting to be discoverered...I am a sailor searching for a lighthouse to guide Me back into port after too long at sea....I am a cowboy searching for My last sunset to ride into...I am many things...Search inside Me and see Me for the man that I am, the man that I was, the man I hope to be. For, I am all that. Take the time to look into My soul.
I am a man of Honour, first and foremost. I live by a Code each and every day that has never steared Me wrong. It is built on Honour, integrity, pride, chivalry and loyalty. My loyalty is to My conscience first and foremost, then to My family, then to comrades-in-arms, and finally to my country. I am extremely patriotic and if need be, I would lay My life down for My flag, My corps, My country. It was once said that a man without Honour has nothing left to lose. I believe that, and try to live My life through My conscience at all times.
Enter the world of a warrior-poet, a weary traveller who listens to distant music on ancient evenings. I believe in dreams. I believe in fate and destiny, that God has set our paths before us. I dream of what lays just out of My grasp, something I yearn for, something I crave. It is distant and it is eternal. But it is there. Only few can see it and even fewer ever find it.
...this is My world...
...this is My dream...
...this is My search...
...enter if you dare...

"Though much is taken, much abides; and though
we are not now strength which in old days
moved heaven and earth; that which we are, we are,
one equal temper of heroic hearts
made weak by time and fate, but strong in will,
to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield"
