I want to see every place,

To hear the sounds from every village and every city,

To find new family as every lifetime passes,

To see them to their deathbeds as every last breath is beckoned. 

I want to see new ages rise and fall,

And when the frailty of mortality around me becomes too much, 

I want to sink into the deepest caves and highest mountains,

And know the life that dwells where humans tread not. 

I want to love every story on earth, 

And when it comes time to say goodbye,

I want to know how to love it as it takes its final breaths.

If I have to wish I could die for the privilege, 

So be it.

I want to know Life.
