I am inspired by people
who rise above the mundane quagmire
of their previous daily existence.
One day through diligence,
they become better off than the day before.

Just like an infant who steps out of a dirty diaper and 
continues to walk forward, he will ultimately look back.
He can hear, see, feel, smell or be smeared by the previous.
If he backslides he will lose what he has gained.

What he rose above, only to leave behind
becomes highly motivational in retrospect.
The ultimate essence of this new dignity,

*Dedicatd to those who refuse to remember!
