On December 4, 1985,
I was born into this world and named,
Drew Joseph Beaumier.
Seventeen years later in March of 2002,
at my weakest moment,
I was reborn as Blindman.
Now there exist several reasons for this occurance that I give, such as:
I wear shades all the time because,
I hate it when people can see my eyes,
and the sun burns me.
My favorite hero is Daredevil.
He is blind,
and without fear.
I have incredibly poor vision,
without my glasses or contacts in,
I might as well be blind.
But the true reason for the creation of my alias brings me back to March of 2002.
Like most great heros,
my name was a curse,
given to me by my enemy.
As I laid covered in my own blood.
One phrase kept entering my head,
the vile words of someone I once trusted.
"You are blind"
So I carried my alias around for years,
using it as a reminder of the mistakes I had made,
so that they would never happen again.
I no longer need carry this burden with me.
Yes, I will forever remain the Blindman.
But instead of my name being a curse,
I shall look at it as my creed.
I will blindy do the right thing in every situation regardless of the obstacles or consequences that are attached, because that's who I am. I will continue in this fashion until one day it will undoubtedly take my life, but as long as I never stop saving and continue on my blind path, I know that I can find rest with my death. Because sometimes the right thing comes at a price, and I pay for the cause. And finally, I will pray for death long before it is delivered, for I walk the path of the blind.
