Do what you want as long as you let me live my life on my own terms. Do what you want as long as you let me run free. I crave the wild, the storms, the ups and downs, the thunder, the hail and the lightning. I crave to see it all. The darkness of the night, the light of the day, the sun, the moon, the rain and the rainbow. I want to see it all, experience it all and get to know everything this life has to offer. I want the beautiful and the edgy, I want to make it through the messy and the rough times. Most of all, I want to feel alive. I don’t care much for the easy but boring life. I want to experience it all, the good, the bad, the evil. I’d rather live in extremes than stagnate in the golden middle. I know I thought quite differently not a long time ago. But times have changed. I’m recharged, full of life and energy and eternal youth. So let me use my strength, my power! Let me explore, let me be wild. Let me run free. Let me hit the wall head first and bang the doors in frustration and weep in despair, let me cry tears of happiness, laugh till my belly hurts and make love all night long. Don’t feel the need to protect me from the negative emotions, from the bad and the evil, you don’t do me a favour. I want to feel all emotions in a full blow. I don’t live for the good only. I want to experience life. All of it. The dark and the bright side, the valleys and the mountaintops. As long as I am free, everything is alright. The breeze of freedom will carry me through times of existential crises and overflowing joy alike. Don’t worry about me if I go from one extreme to the other. I will turn the corner just in time. Trust me. Let me be alive and free rather than alive and over-protected. I don’t want to be safe and sound at all times. I want to live and feel like I’m actually living, not waiting for death to come round in the living room of a house that’s identical to all the other houses on the block after having worked at the 9 to 5 I hated for years on end. Nah. This is not what I’m here for. I was born a maverick, I’m meant to be crazy, silly, strong, inspirational, recalcitrant, critical, different, I’m here to be me and I might not fit into society’s norm but so what! At least I live life every day, every minute. I seek the wild and will do so until the day I die. I will die as someone who has lived, not die as someone who was dead all the time but just didn’t realize it, trapped in society’s prison of mind.
