Not many of us are privileged by the warmth of a pleasant childhood, but that cannot be an excuse for the actions in our future. We are defined by the actions that we do. I choose the path to immortality, because what we do alive, goes down in eternity.

What I am today is the result of the choices I made in different stages of my life. I may not be perfect but I am proud of what I am today.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
(William Ernest Henley)
