Lorde Was Right, We’ll Never Be Royals

lorde royals

Statistically speaking, the majority of us will never be royals because only 1% of us can be the 1%. We all have dreams, we all have creative expression and we all have a genuine desire to be distinguished from our pairs. For most of us though, none of it will ever be reciprocated. How do we continue with our lives knowing that our dreams may remain dreams and that our lives may never be remembered?

I don’t know the answer. I can usually fabricate an answer for each an every question, but when it comes to this, I am without wisdom. I cannot comfort you in the reality of insignificance because I cannot comfort myself. I truly believe that writing is my purpose but I wonder about the nature of that purpose, if very few read my writing.

Although it is true that we should ultimately live for ourselves, I can’t help but think of my life in relation to others. How do I affect people? What do people think of me? Will they remember me? Can I help them? These are collection of thoughts that solidify my wish to be royal. I wish to be royal because I wish to use my words to alter the minds of many.

I want my words to be immortal and never fade, I want my history to change the future and not repeat it and I want my death to signify the beginning of a legacy, not the end of an existence. These desires are great and the chances of fulfilling them small, but I will continue with them because that’s all I know to do.
