I feel a restlessness stirring inside me.
It started in the darkened corners of my mind
And has slowly been expanding
And morphing into a feeling that I can no longer ignore.
I want to explore
And have beautiful adventures out in the world.
I want to sit with my feet in the ocean
And the sun shining down on my skin.
I want to traverse rough and rocky terrain
Until I come across some hidden glen.
I want to climb trees
I want to swim in lakes and rivers
I want to skip stones on little creeks
And canoe across still lagoons.
I want to kayak up the Alaskan coast
I want to leap
Through sunlit meadows.
I want to watch the sun rise
From a mountain top.
I want to walk barefoot
Along forest paths.
Every plant and animal I come across.
I want to bathe in hot springs
and meditate in the rain forest.
I want to picnic on secluded islands
and dream in hammocks.
I want to ride a camel across the desert.
I want to safari across the beautiful plains of Africa.
I need this restlessness to leave me in peace.
I need to let myself be wild
I need to let go of the fear.
To be me!
