:
A man can rise, a man can fall,
Or choose to hide behind a wall,
To take a stand or merely stall,
Accept his fate or not at all.
A man can walk, a man can run,
To choose to talk or get things done,
To carry on, slim chance or none,
Until he knows the battle's won.
A man can laugh or question why,
Defend the weak and not just try,
A man can weep or merely sigh,
A man can choose to live or die.
Yet such as these apply to me,
Each chance I choose what I would be,
A man of great integrity!
Or just a man, no more to see!
