I crave purpose.
I want to do something
to be something
to mean something.
I want to rise to the expetations others have imagined for me
To recieve the nod of approval, acceptance
And to know somehow it's enough.
I want to look back on previous years without regret
And towards the future with anticipation.
I want to leave a legacy in flesh and bone.
I want to create a masterpiece that breathes.
I want to touch a life that in time will touch another and in so doing, fulfill a purpose that never dies.
