A few days ago, a friend asked ... "What is it that you really want from this life?".
I could only stare at him with a surprised expression, not because I didn't expect this question from someone at some point, but because I couldn't answer.
I was like a little kid who was caught red handed for sticking her hand into a cookie jar ... one who could only stutter when questioned. Such behaviour was unacceptable.
I simply shrugged and gave him a socially-familiar reply.
"I don't know."
Such an answer was more unacceptable by a mile.
I knew exactly what I wanted out of life. I have even planned out everything.
But in a cruel twist of fate,
If anything should take an unexpected turn,
I'll be ready to face it,
With an open heart with a beating chest,
So help me I will,
Cause I am stronger than this.
Now, ask me again.
