My constant desire is to put pen to paper.
 
― But it’s not enough.
 
To be heard you have to get out there and do it yourself.
 
Make others listen.
 
Let your drive and passion drive them.
 
Inspiration is key―
 
Inspire others as they have inspired you.
 
Encourage success with open thought,
 
Encourage ambition with humility.
 
―Encourage and inspire. 
 
Because simply hoping is not enough.
 
Some of the greatest minds and voices have been repressed.
 
Some of the wisest have been slain for their wisdom. 
 
I want to be one of them. 
 
I desire to reach inside of your soul―
 
Father, mother, little brother,
 
Friend, foe, and person I do not know. 
 
I want my words to engage true critical thought,
 
Enforce you to feel discomfort and weariness.
 
Because it is the content that makes us most uncomfortable,
 
Most frighteningly aware of reality, that requires the most discussion and thought.
 
Examine your life. Examine your surroundings.
 
Because “the unexamined life is not worth living.”
 
So, friend, take my hand and heed my words.
 
Together we can make our lives worth living.
