People Are Really Good at Heart, So As The Bad Boys Of Sports

People are really good at heart..

That's what I've learn from reading Anne Frank's diary, Come to think of it people really are good at heart. The bad boys aren't born bad and doesn't die bad. Most of the time they are forced to portray a character, different and distinct from what they are, sadly they adapt that character and forgot who they really are.

Sometimes, behind that big scary voice and bad boy image is a guy seemed to always longed for peace.

Mike Tyson, Rape convictions, traffic incidents, drug addictions not to mention ear-biting scenario. His nickname suited him well, "The baddest man on the planet" but after all that has been said and done. Tyson seemed to realize and reflect what his life came to be.

“My whole life has been a waste—I`ve been a failure. I just want to escape. I`m really embarrassed with myself and my life. I want to be a missionary. I want to get this part of my life over as soon as possible. In this country (USA) nothing good is going to come of me. People put me so high; I wanted to tear that image down."

Wilt Chamberlain once quoted in his second autobiography view from above that he has bedded 20,000 women in the course of his life. Controversies stirred, but shortly before his death he made regret making that statement and said.

"Having a thousand different ladies is pretty cool, I have learnt, (but) in my life I`ve found out that having one woman a thousand different times is much more satisfying."

George Best, one of the best football player of all time. Best lived a tragic life along with gambling, womanizing and drunk driving nonetheless he came to a point wherein he felt bad over what has happened in his life. At an interview he asserted his final message as, "Don't die like me."

Tyson, Chamberlain and Best are just few examples of the so-called "bad boys" Sometimes they are to blame for their tragedies and failures but most of the time society are to blame.

Why? because society had given them a "mark" and that "mark" is for them to keep throughout their life. I feel bad, not only to the three athletes listed above but also to the others who had been marked as, a waste, useless and no-good.

Dennis Rodman, Shane Warne, Jose Canseco all the others, even the ordinary people, the ex-convict who wants to start a new life, the drug addict who's undergoing rehabilitation, the slut who wants to settle down and have his own family.

The truth is were all been marked..

As a conclusion, Inspite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I think it will all come out clean, tyranny and cruelty will end and that serenity will return again.
