I Want to Be

November 4, 2011

I want to be at peace.
I want to die sitting up-
with no regrets.
I want to live
with arms wide open.
I want to see things
as the truly are.
I want to witness a miracle.
I want to find true love.

I want to capture beauty.
I want to believe
in all things good.
I want to make
all my dreams come true.
I want to hear,
and be heard.
and be loved.
I want to be.

I want to BE.
