How remarkable is it to be seen, to just stand here among a group of people (None who look like you) breathing life into your world Not asking you to explain yourself, your skin, your religion, or your lover to find others whom don’t share your blood But share your heart, or what you think the meaning of life is, and of the worse burden of being invisible, of being made incorrectly . . . because some deem it. No you have found just the right light—and you have only to bask in it and be thankful for words so kind so caring they seem not words but shooting stars, in which your mere lucid actualization eclipses stereotype. How remarkable it all is! And how remarkable it is not to be seen, not at all, to, well, just stand here while people (none who look like you) not knowingly say those hurtful wrong things, But they think they’re the right things if you are, which you’re not, the same —a difference, really, so indifferent it’s a cliff note in the novel of your life, Perception really, to add context to the story. And so you don’t mind, you welcome the anonymity of those hushed whispers crawling like insects, having found, after all, you are thankful —and you’ve lived here, how remarkable!— that you’ve been led to disappear, like the abortion that didn’t take under the light of the operating table, the falling stars.

I know I’m the guy that has everything it takes to be a champion. It's not just about being great inside the ring: it's about being able to do great things outside of the ring. Not everyone has that. I love to be out there with the people.
