A song bird sings me a fragile song as I lay in the grass down the hill. A little ways over there is a creek that is distilled but my siblings like to catch crawdads in the spring time. I am young and thinking of all the possibilities capable for myself. I learn that I have no limits. But I would have to get up out of the grass. Work hard to the limitless goals I am capable of giving myself. But is that what I wish to do? To get some college degree and work some office job for double minimum wage. With a wife that I had met at the bar after a late night of work. Let myself end up having a few kids and scraping by to put them through college? Don’t get me wrong. I would love to a have a wife. I would absolutely love to watch my children grown and succeed in what they wish to be in life. Do I want to be normal? Do I want to follow this path of content way of life? I say no not quite. I want to raise a little hell with this girl. This beautiful amazing girl that have the bluest eyes I’ve ever seen.  I want to mess up. I want to blaze a new trail for myself. I was never cut out to to follow the norm. I need exciting but relaxing at the exact same time. The saying Is “Do what makes you happy.”’ Not do what will make you happy in the future. So are you with me? I am not much of a leader. But we will blaze this trail hand and hand. I am not a leader, I am an innovator.
