I want to be far away, somewhere where no one knows my name.
Somewhere I can exist without judgment, without expectations.
Somewhere where people will learn to love me, for me.

I want to live simply yet strangely ­extravagantly.
I want to be someone's everything but most people's nothing.
I want to learn to love and to hate more purely.

I want to break barriers and put some up.
I want to discover something that is ­uncorrupted.
I want to make a difference, a small wave of impact.

I want to construct and destruct.

I really like the use of anaphora. The last line took me aback and changed the tone of the poem; "destruct" is an interesting twist.
