Everything is possible, always and everywhere. Male, aged twenty. Self and self-confidence are mercurial. Sceptical, exacting, incisive. College-going. Sophomore year. Philosophy, psychology.
We are whirlwinds; firestorms; waterfalls. Forces of nature, adventure, passion, power and pride. My passions are life, the human mind, and the English language.
And yet, I cannot help but note, that there is something very wrong with our world.
An aspect of that, is that I hesitate to take direct note of it, to recognise that it is not right, and struggle not to name it, lest I get to know it too intimately.
I am asked to look away. I will not. I will fight the haze, learn its nature, its reason for being, and destroy its source.
Clear eyes, calm mind, straight spine set strong.
