In elementary school i was always the kid that chose Terry Fox or someone as their idol, and i think that’s because I don’t really have one. People do amazing things but I don’t have any one person I ‘look up to’ persay. I want to be someone new and I want to be me, not some carbon copy. I want to be some little kid’s idol when I’m older. I guess what i mean is that I don’t really have an idol because I don’t want to be like anyone else. I want to be my own idol.
To be honest no one. Not ever completelt anyway.
The song that I have for this doesn’t make me cry, but whenever it’s playing, I turn it up and I close my eyes and I just listen. This song, about half way through the summer, completely changed my view on everything. I don’t know why either because it’s not a particularly positive or depressing song. It just changed a lot. Maybe it’s the lyric “And tonight I know it all has to begin, so whatever you do, don’t let go” or maybe it’s the chorus and how it’s about starting over and making everything better but just by slowing down and being present. I don’t know what it is about this song, and I don’t think I ever will, really, but it’s my song. I’ve never had a song quite like this before, but it’s mine. It shares the same views as me, after all. It’s called “Us Against the World” by Coldplay.
Something that I full heartedly believe in is the ability to immortalize yourself. It’s fairly easy. All you have to do is leave something behind of yourself. Look at all the dead artists and writers and everyone who is remembered today. Even Hitler immortalized himself. I know that one day the human race will be no more, but there will be things we leave behind. Even once the sun burns up our earth or explodes and leaves the Earth lightless, there will be something. Maybe only particles of a planet and lives that were once lived, but that is not nothing. I am bent on being remembered. They say you have two deaths, the real, physical one, and the last time someone sais your name. I don’t ever want to die forever.
Initial reaction: meh it’s not too bad but very baby-showery
Final Verdict: There’s a reason people have different tastes in music. Mine just happens to not be this kind.
Initial Reaction: this is going to be great.
Final Verdict: I was so right. Everyone should own this CD
I drew this with pencil first and then with ink.
“We Are Not Owned By Ourselves”
