I want to live simply.
I want to sit by the window when it rains
and read books I’ll never be tested on.
I want to paint because I want to,
not because I’ve got something to prove.
I want to listen to my body, fall asleep
when the moon is high
and wake up slowly,
with no place to rush off to.
I want not to be governed by money or clocks
or any of the artificial restraints
that humanity imposes on itself.
I just want to be,
boundless and infinite.
