By Stanley Collymore
I know who and what I am and likewise what I’ve always
aspired to be, and although there have been occasions
in my life when unforeseen or even conspiratorial
circumstances have cruelly and unfairly
conspired against me to forestall
my deliberately planned and
profoundly cherished
endeavours and the accomplishments which I’d
anticipatorily sought to realize; I’ve always
in response to these unwarrantable actions
approached such challenges with an
open mind, and have never once
allowed them to cloud my
judgement or in any
way, come to that, interfere in, much less threaten
the manner in which I’ve personally sought to
live my life. And consequently I shall never
allow anyone or anything: corporations,
politicians, jobsworth employees—
private or state sector– the state’s
Orwellian apparatuses or
individuals, for that
matter, to ever
change that!
