A Great Creator Named Nater :)

Nathaniel Hunter is a senior this year, and a truly rare find among people. I’ve been his friend for near on 2 years now, and I have seen nothing but a kind and open heart. He is gentle, but has a fiery and tenacious spirit. He is a song writer (just the lyrics), which is a point at which we connect. Though that isn’t my immediate passion now, the power of words in a song is something that I still love to touch people’s hearts with, and I do enjoy a good beat. Like this one (Listen).

The first album Nate wrote was called “The War of the Blade”. If that doesn’t get you interested, then his sequel, “The Legacy Inferno”, certainly should.Here’s some lyrics from his song “Teacher”. It’s gotta be one of my favorites. 

"Am I a weakness in your eyes? A burden you throw aside? Or will you teach me the lessons of life? Give me hope, help me survive. I depend on you to show me the kind of man, I am meant to be. My destiny is set in motion. I can't help but forget the notion. The nightmares that remain unspoken.

“Teacher, I depend on you to show me,
How to be a better man.
Teach me the lessons you can.
To help me complete my journey.
To show me, what kind of man I will be.

The Way of the Blade may hold some truth. But I can't help but disapprove. Why would you show me this? Is this a lesson to be learned? Is it to teach me, to deal with the pain? Or just a lie, to keep me sane, in the end?

Teacher, I depend on you to show me,
How to be a better man.
Teach me the lessons you can.
To help me complete my journey.
To show me, what kind of man I will be.”

.....Such amazing words! Thanks, Nate, for that awesome talent you are able to share with people. Get it all published, seriously! Another cool thing about Nate is that he is an actor. I had the pleasure of being in a play with him in our Advanced Theatre class last year. He was Lord Capitulate, and I was a Seussy Narrator, in the box stage annual “One Acts” performance of “The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet”. It was some great fun! Well, here are some shots of this goofy, dramatic (not like “oh my God, he broke up with her?!” kind of drama…haha), amazing, and gifted person that I know as “Nate”. Enjoy!
