I came to know this poem from one of my Department of English & Literature courses.  It is one of John Keats famous works.  He is representative of romanticism style writing.  Although he passed away at the young age of 26, his work and outlook on life influenced the world.  Sadly, he left the world before his work had a chance to impact the world, but somehow he knew he’d have a lasting impression.  He once said, “I think I shall be among the great English poets after my death.”  One value he emphasizes in his work is “negative capability”.  This is the ability to empty one’s self of all desires in order to connect with other things.  He was very passive as a poet.  Comparing myself to John Keats, I learn a great deal about myself and him.  Before being my sojourn as editor-in-chief of The Sookmyung Times, I didn’t understand what it meant to be a leader.  However, I realize that a leader is great only by listening to subordinates and practicing constantly to achieve negative capability.  As new editor-in-chief, I promise to make The Sookmyung Times more horizontal and eliminate any vertical hierarchy.  Everyone should voice an opinion and listen to constructive criticism and ideas.  Fortunately, I have an excellent group of reporters working with me, so our new outlook for the magazine is surely to be successful.
The poem below speaks of steadfast love like the brightness radiated by a star.  The line “Still Stedfast, Still Unchangeable” is impressive to me.  I hope to become as steadfast as the star in the poem as editor-in-chief.  Frankly speaking, despite making the resolution to become unchangeable, people frequently lose track of their path.  With the publication of The Sookmyung Times’ 334th edition, I will be in charge of a total of three issues.  Until my last days as editor-in-chief, I promise to work steadfast for The Sookmyung Times.  Enjoy this edition of The Sookmyung Times.
