I AM AN AMERICAN SOLDIER
I AM A COMBAT MEDIC (68 Whickey is my M.O.S.)
I am a PHOENIX in my soul and my wings make a statement.
Huge and born of flame, they burn with light and power and rebirth. Ashes fall from my wingtips. I am an amazingly strong person. I survive, even flourish in adversity and hardship. A firm believer in the phrase, 'Whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger,' I rarely fear failure.
I know that any mistake I make will teach me more about myself and allow me to 'rise from the ashes' as a still greater being. Because of this, I rarely make the same mistake twice, and am not among the most forgiving people. I'm extremely powerful and wise, and capable of fierce pride, passion, and anger. Perhaps I'm this way because I was forced to survive a rough childhood. Or maybe I just have a strong grasp on reality and know that life is tough and the world is cruel, and it takes strength and independence to survive it.
And independence is my strongest point - I may care for others, and even depend on them...but when it comes right down to it, the only one I need is myself. Thus I trust my own intuition, and rely on a mind almost as brilliant as the fire of my wings to guide me. I am eternal and because I have a strong sense of who and what I am, no one can control my heart or mind, or even really influence my thinking.
A symbol of rebirth and renewal, I tend to be a very spiritual person with a serious mind - never acting immature and harboring a superior disgust of those who do. Likewise, humanity's stupidity and tendency to want others to solve their problems for them frustrates me endlessly.
This sums up not who I am, but who I can be.
