In the shadow's grasp, the youth emerges.
Not seeking the spotlight, as the world's convergence.
With hesitance as my mistress true,
I step forward bravely, to face the feud.
Fatherless and wary, I take each stride,
Finding hidden strength, where doubts coincide.
Unwillingly embarking on this quest, paths that I choose to put doubts to rest and end the feud.
Through trials and tribulations, these carves a path,
Growing in stature, and facing the aftermath.
Not a hero by design, but a spirit untamed,
In the tapestry of life, uniqueness is framed.
With every obstacle, my spirit takes flight,
A man undeterred, facing the darkest of nights.
In transformation, we redefine the story,
To find the boy of substance, embracing life's glory.
— Vincent Porras
