I Don't Need Much

Mon, 01/18/2016 - 20:58 -- Bordley

I care little for luxuries.

Material things like clothing, electronics, and jewelry mean nothing to me.

I don't listen to society.

Media has no influence on who I am or what I do.

I shy away from extravagance,

Opting instead to focus on the simpler beauties of life.

 

I don't need much.

There is but one thing that I cannot live without.

 

Purpose.

 

I don't need much.

But without a purpose, I have no reason to live.

 

I don't need much.

Just a drive, a reason, a passion.

I have many passions

And numerous reasons for me to be alive.

I can't possibly name them all,

but a few are my love for my family and friends, my curiosity and thirst for knowledge, my passion for music, m-

 

Oh.

 

Maybe I need more than I think I do.

I need a purpose, but that word encompasses a great deal more than I thought.

Perhaps I really do need much.
