I'll post some more later on.
This is a speech I made for my English class.I'm pretty nervous about it since its copeltely different from everyone else's.
I was born into this cruel world. From childhood to now this world is still just as cruel as it was when I was born. But from this cruel treatment, great ambition rose. Ambition that makes me stride towards my dreams and hopes, however hopeless they are. Although this world does everything within its arsenal to stop me and spurn me back with rebukes and ridicules. I continue to strive forward to my hopes and dreams, to the dreams caused by my ambitions, to the hopes to live in a kinder, better world.
Most people would tell you that they’ve had many friends in their life. I can tell you that I’ve had only a few in mine. Ever since I was a little kid, I was always picked on, ridiculed and laughed at, whether for being the only Asian in the school or for something else. The so called sanctuary of the church was no difference either. In fact it was worse in those holy hell-holes, as the other children would exclude me from everything, and if they included me, I was to be their entertainment. That of course forced me to move to over 9 different churches, where I received the same treatment by all of the children my age, while the ignorant, unknowing adults all the while had their backs turned.
School was a continuous sea of cruelty, as I was basically the outcast from elementary to even now. Apparently being nice and trusting others no longer works towards one’s survival but now works against it. Pain was a constant feeling I had felt, as I can probably tell you that I could count the total number of friends I had in elementary school on one hand. Middle school was the same, except that we were older.
From all of these experiences a feeling stronger than hate rose in me. This feeling was directed towards the world and at all of the inhabitants. Animals seemed more human then humans themselves. Mankind had shown himself as a cruel barbaric child born out of wedlock, who received entertainment from one another’s pain and injury. Such was my view of humanity. From studying history, I have found much support on my view. After the feeling that was more powerful than hate himself subsided, that was when ambition exploded like a hydrogen bomb inside me. I grew inside of me such passionate desires to change the world, for one that was better, kinder, and one that would be no longer cruel to me.
By studying history and learning history,I will ensure myself that the same mistakes and failures will not happen again. From this I grew confidence in my ambitions, my dreams. I will tell you this, you will find some of my ambitions silly and stupid, but they are my ambitions not yours. You do not have the dreams I have, nor have you faced a life of solitude with the only interaction with those your age was to be ridiculed and picked on.
I have many ambitions, but they are all from what will hopefully result in one goal of mine. My goal is to rise in the corporate world and own my own global business. My dream is to have that business create an infinite amount of jobs for those that live in the third world countries, as well as creating unlimited jobs for many in the developed countries. Of course creating jobs to help so many that cannot live without poverty will put the company in a good spotlight. But of course, from this ambition, I must say this amuses me a little bit as well, but from this I hope to create my own political party in such a third world country, most likely in the African Horn and rise to become not a dictator but instead as a constitutional monarch, backed by the support of the people whom I am trying to employ and give better lives. If the political party does not work, then there is always the possibility of paramilitary and mercenaries which I would be able to get and pay for, since the company of mine has the funds to finance such a thing. Of course I would allow all freedoms here practiced in the U.S. to also be practiced in the country, along with representation of the people, but one thing will be that I will hold a certain amount of power to myself to right what I see as corrupt and wrong.
From there my greatest ambition will begin; the attempt for world domination, the humiliation of the proud, and the attempt to create a better world. This will be the first step towards the realization of my goal of creating a better world. A world where cruelty is rare, and if encountered will be parried with less harsher form, until it learns to never show its face again. A world where equality is fully embraced a world without poverty. Of course I won’t spoil the details of how I plan to take over the world to you.
My ambitions, as silly as you may think they are, are still my ambitions and not yours. Of course I understand that there is a good possibility that I will die for attempting my greatest ambition, but going after something is better then just standing still isn’t it? My views of mankind have stemmed from my knowledge of history and past experience. From such views arose my ambitions, and from such ambitions, I came to be.
