Question

Where eagles soar

I stay no more

I rest among the stars.

While once I swore,

Not now, no more.

My life is told in scars.

When patch-eyed men

Come 'round again

Their lives are in my hand.

I'll stand up strong,

Release the throng--

What's blue I do command.

After a few rough edits...

maybe it's just pirates in general? or ship captains?

Or wait, could it be Captain Hook?

by chance that I got it right (doubtful), my official answer is Captain Hook!

Leaving the other answers in there in case they're right, or close to it :blush:

Some good answers, but no. You've followed the right path, though.

I don't really like hints, but...

He doesn't soar with eagles any longer...

Clyde Tombaugh.. Although it doesn't fit the "'till forty-five" part..

I was trying to think of an Apollo/Mercury astronaut earlier but I could find none that fit the riddle well also.

I signed up today and like your ridde. I only saw the rest of the stanzas after I have adding a reply. I don't have the answer yet, but here goes...

This was probably a famous sports personallity in a team called "eagles" (sorry I am not American so will have to do my homework.)

There are 8 people in total in a team or group and was one of 6 family members. He died at the age of 45 undefeated. He excited the "throng". He was probaly a boxer who gave many a man a blue eye and their lives were in his hands (boxing gloves). He died a broken man but his name is among the stars or even in Hollywood on the pavement. Am I on the right track or way off?

Rocky Marciano died at age 45 in an airplane (eagles sore). He is the sixth greatest heavyweight champion ever. And he came from a family of six (had trhee sisters). From wikipedia: Ring Magazine numbered Marciano at #12 on the list of the 80 Best Fighters of the Last 80 Years. He was undefeated and died a star. Patched eye men (men he gave blue eyes) came round after being knocked to the floor. Their lives were in his hands (boxing gloves). I excited thr "throng" (spectators). And his name means: 'From the god Mars'

This is interesting. I just Wiki'd Rocky Marciano and he fits almost exactly. I couldn't fit him into the first two lines or the last line. This is a very clever observation, but not what I had in mind.

I'm not looking for a specific person.
