    On Growth

    I want to read
    But I also want to create beautiful photographs
    I want to crochet
    But I also want to write poetry and sing and learn to create music
    I want to walk through the forest
    But I also want to dive into the ocean
    I want to learn to be a fighter, a hunter, a warrior and a survivor
    But I also want to be a dreamer that manifests my soul into art
    I want to learn about science and launguages and how to do every kind of craft that involves my hands
    But I also want to experience culture and history and all the beautiful, rugged, bountiful and captivating landscapes of the world
    I want to love
    But I also want to love myself
    And I want to give all that I have to give
    But I also don't want to be empty
    I want to be weak
    And strong
    I want to be resilient
    But I also want to be soft like flowing water and warm like hearts beating within an embrace
    I want to be close to you
    But I also want to be close to myself
    I want to be a healer
    But I also want to healed
    I want to be complete
    And yet I never want to stop growing.
