A Simple Question

Ask Tell Deceive's picture

What do you want to do with your life? I don't mean what you want to do as a job. Or a hobby. I mean what do you want to do.

I want to be an inspiration for revolution. I want to be looked at years after my death and have it said: "That woman showed us why to fight for our right to love." I want to have my works read by high school students and inspire them to break from their social mold and look at life from their own point of view- not my point of view. I want to make them create their own.

So in that sentiment, what is it you want to do?

"A loving man and woman in a committed relationship can marry. Dogs, no matter what their relationship, are not allowed to marry. How should society treat gays and lesbians in committed relationships? As dogs or as humans?"

The girls at your HS?

Can they hold hands without eliciting comment?

i want to write a line that

i want to write a line that somebody will hear and remember and hold close to them. even if I don't know. i want my words to be somebody's light.

I want to search for the individual stories that make up the vast global narrative. I want to embrace them for their contradictions and remember that though they differ, they are all true. I want to tell these stories and help people remember that truth is not universal and we are all human despite our differences.

I want to make those I love smile.
