Freedom from Desertion

What I Need

What I will need will not include

Fire, water, earth

What I will need will not include

Water, food, shelter

What I will need will not include

People, objects --

Promises --

Are what I can’t live without

To know that I will be safe again

To know that someone will think of me --

Look for me --

I promise that I will find a way back,

For a deserted island is a warning

To not get close, to be weary of why it was deserted in the beginning.

I must have the promise of a future, and the promise of motives to find a way to free myself.

I need the promise of freedom and limitless will so that I will continue to strive

To get off the deserted island.
