You ask me what is important to me
and I can list a thousand things:
but what means the most to me?
The will to live.
Even if it means i never own a house
or never become famous,
even if no one even knows my name,
I want to live.
To travel the world,
to see the wilds of this Earth,
to learn all there is to know,
whether its psychology, math, or astrology;
aeronautics, biology, or even business.
music theory and literature.
I want to do what makes me happy,
like photography, or culinary, or music,
because Jefferson said our most basic rights
are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,
and I cannot be satisfied without all three
because to be happy, I must give up the riches
that everyone seems to be chasing after
and live life freely.
Free life is happiness,
and I will not give up my freedom for money or fame
because happiness means more than owning this world ever could.
