Role models
We all have them
Whether they are
Family or friends
Teachers or mentors
Public figures or fictional characters
These people provide a framework
For us to shape part of our lives
Role models
Hold much power
Over those who look up to them
Their influence holds many consequences
Either good or bad
Role models
A simple term
Yet one with heavy implications
There is a fine line between
Following a role model and hero worship
Role models
Are not always heroes
And should only be judged
By the actions pertinent to the role
One wishes to follow
If a role model has a skill
That you wish to learn
Simply follow their footsteps in acquiring the skill
Their purpose is in the terminology:
“Role model”
To model a role
Not to be them
