I Drink the World


I chase what I'm not,

What I choose to be.

I learn

I run

I play

I watch

I do

I try


I will never master anything,

But it's what I love;

What's new,

What I can dip my feet into.

I'm not the best,

But that's what I want.

How is the world interesting

If you know it all?

There's so much to know.

The more I consume,

The more I learn,

The more I drink it in,

The closer I am with the world.

It's how I want it,

How I pursue it

That gives me worth.
