  • I do not have a role model, but it's not that I don't admire others, or that I haven't put thought into the matter, But because I do not wish to emulate anyone. I don't care to be the next Poe, Bach, Einstein, Or Gandhi. Because as amazing as these people are, they will never be me. I wont let myself live in the shadows of such high idols, standing on their tall pedestals. As they force us to crawl our way up, perhaps to reach them, but to go no higher. I wish to build my own name and purpose, one uncontrolled by the expectation of Family, Friends, or Society. I hope to one day be on one of those high pedestals, as later generations demand their children to be like me, but I will not cry, as they abandon me, and crawl higher, I will only cheer them on, as they make the world better then I could.
