As I sat down by the window I wondered what my story would be ?
I frequently watch interviews with celebrities who talk about their life’s stories,
I always love stories of those people who against all odds succeeded.
The unlikely under dogs who grew up dirt poor and were undervalued,
Who had a dream that seemed so impossible,
those who couldn’t even speak English or had shoes to wear,
Who are winning the best awards and whose fame lasted more than a year.
I wonder what my story would be,
If I would be a source of inspiration for the younger generation
or live on unresolved loss and failed promises.
No matter what happens though I know,
That I have to live my life like I would want,
To take chances and fight my fears,
Not the path of least resistance
Or a safety net.
To venture where few would go,
Not knowing what I might see,
And make opinions known,
Without a popular vote.
Cause I was born to be a leader
and not a sheep taken to the slaughter.
