Shedding

I don’t want what most people want.

I dont want the nice clothes,

designer handbags,

the engagement ring,

the wedding,

the down payment,

the career that defines who I am instead of defining myself.

 

I want more.

I want to see the world and everything it has to offer;

smell its stench,

taste its riches.

 

I want freedom.

Freedom to move freely about this Earth,

to meet new people every day,

to experience something different at every turn.

 

To steer clear of what’s expected

and dig out my own path –

one not restricted by tired expectations,

unnecessary regulations or fear.

 

A life lived by the law of being uncomfortable.

A tireless pursuit of what makes this world what it is

and who I am in it.
