Written for Trifecta.
I want to be wild like a whirling dervish.
Wild because I dance to my own song, listen to my own beat, know my true self.
Wild like a woman who refuses to shave her legs.
Wild like a man who embraces his femininity.
Wild because I don’t let fear dictate my decisions.
Wild like a child who paints without judgment, loves without reservation.
Wild like anyone who follows their dreams, no matter how long the journey.
Wild because I have faith in the divine.
Wild like a man who jumps out of an airplane with the hopes of landing softly.
Wild like a woman who follows her heart instead of others’ expectations.
I am wild. I am free. I am here.
This is me. Jumping off a bridge in Jamaica.
