To Live

a poem (aka an excuse to post beautiful pictures from my past experiences while reflecting on images evoked by words)

I want to live a life that pops and bursts with life and color, boldness and passion.

I want to live in peace and comfort, knowing that I am safe.

I want to live a life that's complex but complete, beautiful but not necessarily tidy.

I want to live as one who steps slowly, feeding my senses, taking all things in and moving in ways of harmony with my world.

I want to live with relinquished control but power to choose and change.

I want to live with laughter, tears, and blood-- the ability to feel and simply know.

I want to live within myself while caring for those outside.

I want to live like my desires are a part of something bigger and better than myself.

I want to live so that I can die and leave behind all the things that hold me back.

To live is to die, and to die is gain.
