I don’t want to be the man who runs away. The man who runs away from the fire. I want to be the man who runs toward the fire. Toward the flames. The fire burns. The fire destroys. The fire can kill. But the fire is also warmth. The fire is also light. The fire can be negative. But also, positive. It all depends upon your perspective. I am not running away. No matter how intense the heat becomes, I cannot run away. I CANNOT. Deep within my soul, I want the pain. I want the struggle. I want the fear. I want the challenge. I want the refining. I want to know who I am, what I am made of. I want the bond of brotherhood that can only be forged through the fire. I want to lead. I want to hold others to a higher standard. Challenge others to a higher calling. The fire. It’s burning. It’s calling. Run away? Run towards? I will go first. I will see you on the other side.
