For Now || Of Wanting, Mud-Caked Souls, and Change

I want to
get out and see the world.
I want to
experience what it's like to get lost in a big city and
lose track of time on spontaneous adventures.
I want to
feel the excitement and exhilarating frustration
of stepping on ground where few people step and
of entering lands where the melodic words are foreign to my ears.

I want to
feel people's pain,
hear their stories,
see the mud caked on their feet that's reflecting the mud caked on their soul from living.
I want to
hear how people think,
see how they face adversary and rise to moral dilemmas.
I want to see people
become something
they didn't know they could be 
as they create something
that wasn't before.

I want to see the sunrise and feel the ocean at my feet
as I dance all my days and sing through the stormy nights.
I want to
run faster
than I knew I could,
sing louder
than what's allowed
and be the change in the places where people don't even know it's needed.

I want to be immersed in life,
for Christ is my goal, my strength, my purpose, my fuel.

for now
i need to be diligent until
more of that is realized
as character is built
and tested before
the fulfillment
of dreams
