I want to open all the windows and let the light in;

I think it is time.

I want to look at my reflection in the mirror

and love what I see;

I think it is time.

I want to run as fast as I can down this road,

not to outrun my shadow, but to embrace my destiny.

I want to live my life such that I can find meaning

in all of the mundane details

because life’s too short to not savor every moment.

 

I want to open my heart for all the world to see;

I think it is time.

I want to feel pain, sadness, despair, and grief

so that my wounds can heal;

I think it is time.

I want to look for wisdom on leaf-strewn streets,

seek understanding in the star-littered skies.

I want to love with every fibre of my being,

with every breath and every heartbeat,

without fear or hesitation

because life’s too short to not love every story.
