I've decided that I will periodically share some poetry here, you know just because. This is one that I wrote several years ago and actually performed at a spoken word poetry competition. I didn't win.
I long for adventure in my life. I'm talking heart-pounding, mind-racing, out of breath, "Will I make it?" "Will I make it?" adventure. I want to be one of those people who people talk about in reverent whispers. "Did you hear about that girl who....?" I want to run from danger, shooting sly glances over my shoulder that say "Come on! Is that all you've got?" I don't need a hero, I want to be the hero. I want to save the day and then smile and walk away as if it were nothing, leaving the would-be victims to wonder "Who was that?" with tears of relief in their eyes. You can keep your white knight. I will ride to the rescue myself in my rusted out car with my homemade armor and a pen knife for a sword. I want to laugh uncontrollably with the flood of adrenaline that comes from not dying when I was so certain that I would. I want to fight for what I believe in, literally not figuratively. Fight hard. Fight with everything I have, every last drop of myself. I want to look around me and see the mark I have made on this place.I want to leave my signature on every wall, every stone, on the face of every person I meet. I want to die with a smile on my lips because, in the end, I will know that I made this life mine. I want adventure. I want to change this world with my own two hands.
