I want to Live.

I want to live.
I want to breathe the crisp clean air of mountain tops.
I want to climb the highest trees and watch the sun set, in its dusky colors from atop them.
I want to live.
I want to smile, the widest smile I possibly can
I want to laugh, the loudest laugh that I possibly can.
I want to live.
I want to live life in ways that I haven’t before.
I want to live.
I want to live life a different me, a me that I wasn’t before.
I want to live.
I want to live and release the true me.
I want to live and show what I have been hiding inside.
I want to live.
But I can’t yet.
I want to live.
But first, I must die.

This piece is about wanting to live, but knowing you can't truly live, until the unliving you dies.
