What I Want


I want to live a life FULL of LOVE!
I want to have good times, bad times AND in between times...
I want to smile, even when I’m mad...
I want to cry when I’m happy, not just when I'm sad!
I want to love, even if I’m not loved...
I want to live a life FULL of EVERYTHING!
I want to give, just because I want to...
I want to put a homeless person in a hotel, even if it's just 1 night!
I want to FEEL the pain AND joy of LOVE...
I want to play in the rain and not get wet
I want to live a life FULL of GRACE and BEAUTY!
I want perfect make-up everyday
I want to NEVER have a “bad hair” day
I want to experience love, TRUE love, not one-way love
I want to be happy and comfortable in my own skin!

    Quite clear about what you want. The capitals are for emphasis, I understand.
    My best lines from your poem:
    'I want to smile, even when I’m mad...
    I want to cry when I’m happy, not just when I'm sad! ' - And..
    'I want to be happy and comfortable in my own skin! '
    Well done!
    Thanks for your kind words on my poem, 'You Are Not A Poet'. I appreciate. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
