#3 I WANT TO BE A WILD WOMAN
and soft and gentle and caring...
I WANT TO BE A WILD WOMAN
And still caring and tender and compassionate.
I want to rant about the unfairness of the world and still feel whole.
I want to take corrupt politicians, billionaires and others by the scruffs
of their necks, reconnect them to their emotions
and show them the damage they're doing.
I want to change the world.
I want the world to be fair and equitable.
I want my friends and family to be able to live honest lives,
to thrive, be warm, well fed and abundant.
I want to have the space to express ALL this and ALL emotions AND to still be loved and accepted.

I want time alone and quiet so I can hear my inner callings.
I want everyone to be able to enjoy nature.
To smell the earth and kiss a tree.
I want children to flourish to find their own inner joys
and express them in their own unique ways.
I want that for us all.
I want to have firm boundaries,
Be completely honest about what I do or don't want to do
and still be loved.
Sometimes I want to scream and yell.
Sometimes I want complete silence.
Sometimes I want company.
I want to talk in a normal way
and get things off my chest with the people who 'get me'.
I feel, I feel, I feel.
Energy coming through me.
It must be heard.
Must be expressed.
To suppress it is to depress myself.
Deny myself the honour of this energy.
I want to be a lioness and a bear cub.
Because sometimes I want to roar
and sometimes I want to curl up with my mum in a cave and be safe.
I don't want to be all things to all people.
I want to be myself.
I want to dance to my own time, to my own inner knowing.
I want to swing you around with me and to laugh
until we can't stand up straight anymore.
Giggling on the floor, bellies aching.
I want to read lush stories and be taken into other people's lives.
I want to discuss those stories within deep friendships.
I want to create a life of freedom, flow and fun.
But I also want to feel the depths of despair when they arrive.
When I'm sad I want to be able to cry and not worry about what people think.
I want to lose control and not worry that people will be worried about me.
I want to run naked into the cold British sea
and be instantly warm when I come out.
I want to spin like a dervish. Wrestle in a pool of mud. Shower.
Have a deep massage. And sleep for 12 hours.
I want to sleep peacefully for 9 hours EVERY NIGHT.
I want to wake up feeling radiant EVERY MORNING.
I want to know what to do with the energy that wants to pour through me.
I want to express myself in the only ways I can.
I want to wander across the countryside freely,
absorbed and immersed in nature.
And I want a wholesome meal at the end of it.
I want to embrace all the conflicting sides of myself
and love myself like I have never been loved before.
I want all of this and to not worry about what anyone thinks.
I want to be free to be.
The me that wants to shine. The me that wants to hide.
The me that cares. The me that doesn't care.
I just want to be honest and real.
