“what’s your ultimate goal?” he asked.

what if i’m
not chasing
anything at all?

not fame
not fortune
not glory
not perfection

what if
all i seek
is to
feel
free

in some tiny
quiet way

for a few
short hours
of this life

and what if
that’s
enough
for me

and what if
even with
all the
floating

i can find
a way to
help carve out
change?

freedom is
not so much
a state of being
as a state of mind–
a state of believing
we have the power
to change.
