Pop Culture Values

It's funny, but inspiration can come from the strangest places.

Spiderman has long been my favourite comic book hero; since I was around six or seven years old. My first encounter with him, however, came when I was around three or four at a neighbour's house. Regardless, I would never have guessed that I would one day find something inspirational from something so fictitious. (For all of you who didn't know that, yes, it's true - he's not real.)

I'm referring to a scene from Sam Raimi's recent sliver screen adaptation. In it, Peter Parker is told by his Uncle... No, not "With great power, comes great responsibility." That's very true as well. But I'm referring to something else: Uncle Ben tells Peter that it is at this time that he is changing into the man he will be for the rest of his life.

For those around my age, that's very true. The decisions we make, the habits we form; they will affect us for many years to come. This really is the time of our lives. In more ways than we realise.

The problem with posting a song everyday is that you soon forget which ones you've posted. I have reached that place; bear with me. Yes, I know that I could have made a list, so as not to be confused. Hindsight is always twenty-twenty, no?

My Will
Dc Talk

I'm setting the stage for the things is love
And I'm now the man I once couldn't be
Nothing on earth could now ever move me
I now have the will and the strength a man needs

It's my will, I'm not moving
'Cause if it's Your will, then nothing can shake me
It's my will, to bow and praise you
I now have the will to praise my God

Complexity hunts me, for I am two men
Entrenched in a battle that I'll never win
My discipline fails me, my knowledge it fools me
But You are my shelter, all the strength that I need

It's my will, I'm not moving
'Cause if it's Your will, then nothing can shake me
It's my will, to bow and praise you
I now have the will to praise my God

I'm learning to give up the rights to myself
The bits and the pieces I've gathered as wealth
Could never compare to the joy that you bring me
The peace that you show me is the strength that I need

It's my will, I'm not moving
'Cause if it's Your will, then nothing can shake me
It's my will, to bow and praise you
I now have the will to praise my God

We've got to be children of peace
