Gerard Way: Why You Are My Hero

Gerard Way is one of my biggest inspirations, in fact he is my biggest inspiration and I have been trying to find a way of making him proud of me. I believe that if one of us overcame a problem or accomplished a dream My Chemical Romance would be proud of us, but while I am working on that I decide to write about the man who inspires me every step of the way (ha ha I just said Way) through my confusing and scary journey called my life. First of all I have to talk about that hair it is astonishing, I think it might be magical due to the amounts of times it has changed and it always looks good. The two main things that I find inspirational about Gerard are his talent (his singing, performing, song writing, and artwork) and his story. Gerard Way is one of the most talented people on the planet, he could possibly entertain anyone, apart from the teachers at my school who are always telling us to start listening to good music (teachers don’t understand MCR and me), but Gerard still has me and all of you in the MCRMY. The way how he can throw all his emotion into a song and empower so many people should make him a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize (oh that would be awesome). Also when Gerard performs he gets so lost in the music and connects with the crowd, and not many people do that anymore. Now for the words that he write, it is amazing how all of them make you feel something or remember something, some of the lyrics of his make me so happy that I feel as if I can do anything, while others make my heart hurt but in the end I feel relieved from whatever I was keeping trap inside of me in that dark little box covered in chains and 50 different types of locks. Somehow Gerard and the rest of My Chemical Romance can break through all of that and make me a tiny bit saner again. One of the best things is that he doesn’t write about how he and his mates went to a crazy party last weekend and how they all got drunk and he kissed a girl but now he can’t remember who she is. Gosh I hate songs like that and I am glad he doesn’t sing them. Most importantly Gerard has been through so much and he still is kind enough to share his story and music and heart with us, we should all be grateful. Gerard Way is my hero and I think he might be yours too. And for one last note thank you Gerard for everything you have done for me and thank you for being you, okay that all. I love you all.
