Want or Will [3 Letters]

 

I don’t want to fuck up, like you did.

I don’t want to get my life together too late, like you did.

I don’t want to be another nameless face, like you were.

 

We only take our names to the grave; I want mine to mean something.

I don’t want to only have those in my life who are forced to be there, like you might.

I don’t want to be alone because I was too afraid to step out of my comfort zone, like you were.

I don’t want to only realize that I’m low once I’ve cracked my skull open on rock bottom, like you are.

 

I want to be me.

I want to be together.

I want my life to have value.

 

I want to be me.

I want to have loved ones around me.

I want to enjoy my family’s company; my friends’ as well.

 

I want to be happy.

I want to be healthy.

I want to be successful.

I want to be me.

 

 

No.

No more “want“s.

I WILL be me.

I WILL force myself out of bed.

I WILL do my work.

I WILL love myself.

I WILL be successful.

I WILL turn off my phone to connect with those around me.

I WILL.

I WILL.

I WILL.

I WILL.

 

My life is what I make it.

And I WILL make it what I want.

 

And you see, that minuscule change of 3 letters is enough to help an outlook on life to form. The change of wanting  something, of desiring, of waiting around for it to happen in life, to WILLING something into existence with your hard work, your dedicated mindset, your determination.

3 letters is all it takes.
