I Want

March 16, 2021

PROMPT: Dream Big

I want to be happy.
I want to create change and change the world; research cures, end world hunger, and instigate peace; surrounded by people who only care about money. I want to create change.
I want to be a dreamer; designing fictional worlds for people a hundred years from now to look back on and analyze every subconscious thought I had, tearing up my work because I wasn’t who they wanted. I want to be a dreamer.
I want to be social; friendly, nice, and bubbly; have a million friends, then they’ll all ask me for money, take a few selfies, and leave. I want to be social.
I want to be more; more than anyone said I could be, or dared me to be, or defined me to be, but will that still be me? I want to be more.
I want to be brave; braver than superman and King Kong even though I’m scared of heights and oceans. I want to be brave.
I want to find love; deeper than Juliet’s; like Elizabeth, I want to find my Mr. Darcy in a world with men who rape women that say no. I want to find love.
I want to be a doctor, save people’s lives left and right; waste my life learning things I’ll end up searching on Google. I want to be a doctor.
I want to be happy; with my friends and family reading books by the fireplace cuddled in a blanket sipping hot cocoa; listening to classical music that moves me to tears; and staring at the stars in the sky, a million miles away and yet never having shined so bright.
I want to be happy.

    Yes, SO TRUE!! I especially love the "I want to find love; deeper than Juliet’s." I think the whole piece dives into the idea of longing for something so deeply.
    Re: Thanks!! I just noticed it as was like, "huh, that's kinda messed up."

    Amazing!!! I absolutely love this piece and I can totally relate! I like the usage of repetition to emphasize each of your wants. There's so much authenticity, grace, and emotion in these words that I feel so touched by them. The ending is so satisfying and lovely that I read it at 3 times! Fantastic job :)

    The line "tearing up my work because I wasn’t who they wanted" is absolutely gorgeous! Really nice work.
