I’d be a Morgan Freeman character:
inspirational as hell
with a voice that calms my wild
or shakes me from my apathy.
Here’s a little Freeman for you.
Damn, I wish I sounded like him…
“We sink. We swim.
We rise. We fall.
We meet our fate together!
Now, it took the help of a good, good friend
to make me know and understand that.
And I do understand it,
and I’m grateful.
I’m eternally grateful.”
– Morgan Freeman as Principal Joe Clark in Lean On Me
