Human Aspirations

Or What I'd Like to Be

Human Aspirations

Ambitious and assertive

Brilliantly brave

Confident and creative

Desperately trying to prove that I am

Empowered and energetic

Fearless and fabulously


Hoping to convince the world, or maybe myself, that I can be

Independent, imaginative,

Joyful, and

Kind, with all the skills to be a

Leader, a

Mindful motivator

Noble and nurturing, always

Optimistic and open-minded

Powerful and proactive,

Quick-witted, with a delightful hint of quirky

Resilient and resourceful, radiating

Strength, but

The thing is

Unfortunately, however unique, unstoppable,

Vibrant, and

Wise I try to be, I always seem to fall short of the equation where

X equals happy with myself

Yet, despite my shortcomings, I will

Zealously continue to seek who I am and find my peace

    Love this - the acceptance that even though we never quite feel it, we can still act in line with being our best selves.

  • This was so profound, optimistic and uplifting! Loved your Abecedarian!
