I Want...
by Ashley J. Muldoon

In an unknown place deep down inside,
I want to run, I want to hide,
I want to cry, I want to scream,
I want to wake up from this deceiving dream,

I want to be swallowed by a dark and swirling sea,
I want to be happy, I want to be free,
I don't know what I want, 
I just wanna be...

A message or a letter, proclaiming someone's love,
A dove or an eagle looking down from above,
I want to smile up at the bright sky,
I want true love but I don't know why,

I want arms embracing me when I fall,
To be hugged and cared for like a child's first doll,
I want to be happy, I want to be free,
I don't know what I want, 
I just wanna be...

A rose or a tulip, blooming in the sun,
A diamond or a pearl, precious to everyone,
I want to make a big castle, deep in the sand,
I want someone to be there holding my hand,

I want to be warm, and never again feel cold,
I want to live my life without having to be told,
I want to be happy, I want to be free,
I don't know what I want, 
I just want... to be me.
