What do I want?
The question that sounds more like taunt!
It sounds so simple, but it gives me anxiety,
I’m lost and indecisive, but I blame society,
Is everything I want the same as what I need?
If I let myself be selfish, would the others call it greed?
My desires are not confined,
They’re free and undefined,
Does it even matter what the heart may yearn?
Every dream is fleeting, destined to crash and burn,
The excitement lies in the chase,
It’s all over once you’ve won the race,
You fall into the pursuit of something new,
Just look behind at all the things you outgrew,
Perhaps that’s the definition of being alive,
If we don’t move on, we cannot thrive,
At the end of the day, it’s about a clear conscience,
The feeling of being in control and self-reliance,
May covets shall vary with the circumstances and time,
Wanting to live your best life is no crime,
What I long for today might seem inane tomorrow,
The love of my life could become my sorrow,
When life gives lemons, I want to be brave,
I don’t want to carry any regrets to my grave,
I chase the dream of a happily ever after,
Where pain dies beneath the sound of laughter,
A content heart and a mind at ease,
A lust for life that doesn’t cease.
