What is that one thing you wanted badly in life, a job, love, family, a child, money, fame, etc.?
For me, the answer would be freedom. Yes, I want to be free, to make my decisions, to wander around, to fall in love, to get hurt, to do something adventurous, to sing aloud, to dance in the rain, to fall down, to rise up, to speak, to scream, to laugh, to walk, to run, and most importantly to make mistakes. I want to be free from all these rules, these nonsensical beliefs, the age old traditions, most importantly this fear, fear that something wrong will happen. I want to face wrong situations, I want to get lost, find a way myself, I want to face the fears I have. For once, for just once I want to live my own life. I want to find me, the real me. For once, I want people to understand that I’ve grown up, that I am not the 2 years old daughter they had, that I need to prove myself, that I need to see this world with my own eyes, this world that is selfish, mysterious, troublesome, yet beautiful with all its complexities. I want them to understand that even though they have given me this life; I do have some right to live it my own way. I promise them to be on the right path, but to find that right path, I do need to try some wrong ones.
I want to run far away, to spread my arms wide, embrace the surroundings, to close my eyes, breathe slowly and feel the air…..
I want to live as if there is no tomorrow….
I want to be free…
