What I Want. ©2021 Louise Gallagher
I want to live in wonder to see the world fresh as a new born slippery wet and squirming from the birth canal falling into arms of love holding me safely wrapped in swaddling cloth sewn with velvety silken streams of laughter and joy flowing all around me. I want to live in the awe of life unfolding right here, right now in this moment giving birth to possibilities awakening within the unfathomable beauty of the world pounding through my veins pumping my heart full of the mystery of this morning reincarnating itself within the dark of night passing through star lit skies and moonbeams streaming into day bursting at the seams of my anticipation of the wonder of it all when I open my eyes, wide and stretch my arms even wider to that place where my heart breaks wide open to catch falling stars rain drops and tears I want to scream above the howls of wolves on full moon nights and wind swept mountain tops don’t you dare cry for me Argentina there are no tears needed to wash away this wonder of living beyond the limitations of my fear unravelling in the fullness of every courageous step I take to drive me far from that place where I believe fear will keep me safe from feeling the slings and arrows of fate there is no arrow that can pierce my heart when my heart is open there is no riptide that can pull me under when my arms are open wide and there is no wind that can blow me over when I stand strong strong enough to hold on to only love because I know there is nothing to fear but fear itself and I am born to be wild wild beautiful free. I am born born to be free to cry and laugh and say I love you because I love you is my battle cry my morning song my heart's delight and nothing can stop me singing I am fearless and fierce enough to let life get the best of me because that that is what I want to live in the endless wonder of being me.
