I’m not asking for much. Just adventure, my very own, “based on a true story”. I want travel and new culture; I want love and security- but also chaos. I want to be held but never held back. Sometimes you have to make a choice, because so rarely are they one in the same. We work hard in this life - work to gain the possessions we want and build the relationships we need. In the end these are the things that contain us, they are the anchors that tie us. We belong to all the things in life we love. Our possessions, our loved ones own us, we don’t own them. The things I love are the same things that cause a spark of fear in me that I might have something to lose.
