What I Want

I thought I knew what I wanted.
Little yellow house by the seaside.
Happy sunshine
Quiet as a library
Cuddled under the blankets

I thought I knew what I wanted again.
Library, Sunday afternoons
Curled up on the couch
Wearing your cardigans
Sharing your bed

I thought I knew what I wanted once more.
Life on the road
Your hand in mine as I stand before the mic
Spitting out words through my puppet mouth
That you somehow sent to mine

But I know now
That’s not what I want.
None of those are the path that I want to walk down.
I want my own drum.
I want a dance all my own.
I want a book full of words
Spelled with my own blood
And not in the shape of your face.
I want a sommersault through the sky
Flying absolutely high
With no parachute guy
To catch me.
I am not saying some man won’t walk along this path with me.
I hope
I pray
For that someday.
But I know
I know that this man
This man who’ll hold my hand
Won’t dictate the life I lead.

So I know the path I want
Not the man I need.
But I am headed down somewhere
Somewhere only I can see.
