The warrior for good, the keeper of hope, the protector of honor. I swear I will fight evil to my last breath and I will live by the Code until that day comes. I will never forget my Oath, and I will forever remember the scars on my soul. I hold my sword with pride, I remember the legacy I protect and those who fought hard for it, I am one of the Dragonhearted. I am not only a survivor; I am a warrior, protecting the Code of Honor. I march to the rhythm when others can't; I never fight a losing battle, but I turn the odds; I remember why I fight when the battle seems hopeless. I will forever hold my sword in my hand with my trident-emblazoned wrist, using it to protect the backs of my siblings-in-arms. It is in this way that I will never die; we are immortal.
I am a gamer
I have many lives. I don't die; I respawn. No, the game ending does not mean it's over, it just means to try again on a harder setting. Games don't make me and my friends violent; it's the lag or what we're trying to escape by entering our world. When I'm gaming, I'm not a high school student. I'm a hero, a vigilante, a calm commander, a sword-wielding, confident warrior. As a gamer, I live many lives, all of them meaningful in one way or another. I run through war-torn villages, I survive with the resources I have, I create what I want, I kill those trying to take our freedom, I fly through what people only dream of. I build, I destroy, I kill, I save, I laugh and run freely. I am immortal.
I am a writer
I create universes. I write characters, all of them part of me. These characters shape who I am, and I shape who they are. They are a small part of my soul, and the universes they live in let me see parts of this world I never have. I challenge things no one wants to think about and I show a new part of the world, one untouched. I say all the things no one can, I think into the parts of the universe no one wants to, and I create places that will last longer than me. They are immortal.
I am a tennis player
When I step onto the court, all that matters is me, my opponent, the ball, and my racket. My life fades into the background as the exchange between players begins. There is no time for strategy, only instinct. Both doubles and single strategies have become second nature, and the dozens of things I need to remember when hitting my shot melts into one, fluid movement. The game never stops; even between points, the game is all I think about. Calling the score has become a song all players must know, a balance between making yourself heard and not breaking the delicate balance we have created. With each swing of my racket rests the entire point, yet with each hit experience is gained. In everything I have learned, there is a part of every tennis player that has struggled through learning the game. We will never be forgotten.
I am the Riptide. The Riptide lives forever in my heart.
