I want to live simply



I want to live simply. 
I want to sit by the window when it rains 
and read books I’ll never be tested on. 
I want to paint because I want to, 
not because I’ve got something to prove. 
I want to listen to my body, fall asleep 
when the moon is high 
and wake up slowly, 
with no place to rush off to. 
I want not to be governed by money or clocks 
or any of the artificial restraints 
that humanity imposes on itself. 
I just want to be, 
boundless and infinite.
