I wanna go.

I wanna go somewhere
to a place I’ve never been.
I wanna stand on my own
to breathe the native wind.
I wanna break away from everything I have ever known…..
I wanna feel the breeze out there
to welcome me back home.
I wanna hear their sacred hymns
dance throughout the leaves.
I wanna find myself somewhere,
I wanna live in peace.
I wanna spend the rest of my days,
in the meadows roaming around.
My body is aching I’m tired and frankly
I’m lost and don’t wanna be found.

I watch myself as I try to blend in,
live up to these stagnant roles.

 Within the inside
staring to the outside,
How easy, getting stuck in the mold.
And here I am, in the midst of it all
but my mind is gone every second.
All the while,
I’m trying to keep up,
A life somewhere else does beckon.
As much as I want it,
It seems I’m unwilling,
to surrender to anything else.
If I’m going to rely and depend on somebody I guess it should be my own self.

I’ll take the first leap
I’ll swim beyond deep
From the sea of society.
Find me in the wild-wood,
It flows deep in my blood.
And inside there I’ll die living free..

      1. Last time I was there it was during the Pasadena fires and I worked three weeks as paramedic. Damn traffic! I kept getting stuck in ElMonte at night and my shifts would never end. Did I mention the damn traffic?
        In all fairness though, my unobstructed view here is only 358°. Hehe. I can see a house about two miles away if I try.
