From Youth Blood to an elderly spirit.

IMG_7167.JPG

If what bothers you is my ambition overflow 

My naivety 

and my good intentions,

Then let me run wild

Let me stretch my skin too thin 

and care enough to get hurt 

until I exhaust my tank of ambitions, 

collect certificates of trial and failure 

And try my best at being excellent to those who showed me their worst.

 

Let me choose risk over safety 

And chaos over settlement 

It's my turn to do so and I'm sorry if it didn't work out for you 

but I'm too stubborn to not get drunk on my own blood when I trip and fall

Too curious to not get high on the epiphanies that come along with testing cold waters and entering new territories.

 

Let me!

 

And if you're willing to help in any way

then use your experience to guide me, 

your mistakes to teach me how to get up wiser everytime I fall on my face 

Don't use them to amortize my newly born energy.

Don't tell me to slow down for God's sake! 

 

Youth blood won't run in me forever and I wanna keep running while it does 

And my goal is to keep it flowing even as I get further and further from my date of birth 

 

Don't tell me that you too dreamt of doing that when you were my age

because it makes you sound pathetic while I'm making sure that every ounce in me

sees the potential and keeps its eyes on it and doesn't look down just because a wall came on the way.

 

Let me 

And I promise to make you proud although that's not my goal 

So let me gamble 

As my goal is to gamble a little smarter 

A little wiser

A little more excellent each time.  

Run Wild!
