I am a little bit of everything, but nothing in particular. No remarkable skills remain hidden behind my skin, no overpowering beauty or awe-inspiring wisdom. I am an amalgamation of the sediment that floats through our mainstreams, but I will never be a boulder. I will never be many things, most of which are things I hope to become. I will always be who I was yesterday, and who I was today. I will always be invisible enough to get by; the one thing I have going in my favour. I may stick out more than many, but I have a way of blending in with the cracks when you look at the big picture.
My only talent can be summed up quite simply: I have the talent to recognize talent. I am surrounded by it, everywhere I go. I was born into a family of brilliant children, of which I am the most average. I was born into a family of artists and singers and musicians, of which I am the most average. I was born into a family that each could be considered a different body part, all belonging to the same body, of which I am the appendix. I serve no immediate function. Perhaps millions of years ago I would have made a great addition to the dietary needs of my friends and family, but today I am the thing that could explode and kill you suddenly without warning. People have me surgically removed. People should have me metaphorically removed, to avoid complications that could insue later in life. I will leave a small scar, and scars may always be there, but that doesn't mean the wound hasn't healed.
