I want to have.
I want to have a story people would learn about in classes.
I want to have a song people would hear and love so much.
I want to have ideas people will use and think about.
I want to have words for my sentences, and have sentences for my thoughts.
I want to know.
I want to know how to express myself in the best way there is.
I want to know how to be better than what I think I am.
I want to know how to think I am better than what I am.
I want to know how the world works, and how I can help it work better.
I want to see.
I want to see this great big majestic world that I love so much.
I want to see the people I care for, see them more often.
I want to see that one person I was destined to love for ever.
I want to see the most beautiful thing in the world, and make it even more.
I want to hear.
I want to hear the sounds of nature as it just exists, so calm and peaceful.
I want to hear the voice of the kindest people in the world.
I want to hear the song in my wedding and I want to hear her say “I do”.
I want to hear the last words I will ever hear, and know it’s all good.
I want to feel.
I want to feel the water in a lake in a beautiful forest on a sunny day.
I want to feel the skin of that person I would love more than anything.
I want to feel my bed after a long journey to the lakes and forests and mountains and valleys.
I want to feel that feeling when you know you’re really happy, and you feel as if nothing can be better because you are so happy.
I want to be.
I want to be what I expect others to be.
I want to be in the place I dream about in my ideal dream.
I want to be next to my soulmate in bed knowing she loves me.
I want to be better for myself, and better for others.
I want to love.
