Follow Your Curiosity

I had a conversation with my bestie

She said to me, follow your curiosity

for it is the ultimate expression of your identity.

Imagine a world where you know nothing

and that is the beginning of something.

Even if you don’t know where you shine

or where your interests align,

resist the urge to whine.

Give yourself permission

to experience this confusion

because it informs your mission

and ultimately your passion.

Out of this chaos, you’ll get the right information.

And it might seem like a mess

something very hard to express

but as you put yourself through this test,

you’ll find your best.

Follow your curiosity

to rid yourself of a crisis of identity.
