Strolling breathless

I never knew what I was here for. I always imagined it was for the same reason as all the others. I was breathless at the sight of the worlds wonders and I was happy to see the ones I loved. Yet I never knew why I was here. I always felt like I just strolled through my set paths. Following the instructions I was told. Doing what I was told, and never breaking the rules. I was the picture of a perfect child. Set a high standard are for all the other neighborhood kids. Yet I lacked something. I needed something else, I needed to set free. I always wished my life was like a river. A river is always flowing, always changing. It is not possible to step into the same river twice because the water moves down and away dragging its past behind.
