Maurice Macklin

Maurice Macklin's goal in life is to reclaim his freedom of expression and to exist freely. One of my main avenues of expression will be art

For many people life can be a mundane routine that seems inescapable. Always having to do what is required but it seems like never having the availability to do what is desired. For years I never knew what it truly was that I wanted to do but always knew what I had to do. Before finding activities in life that I truly enjoyed, I always knew I didn’t like doing what was required. I felt that my life was missing something. I was missing myself. I always felt trapped and was never allowed to truly be who I want to be. Everyone from parents and even college professors seem to always try to douse my inner flame and destroy what it is that makes me… me. 

Now my goal in life is to reclaim my freedom of expression and to exist freely. One of my main avenues of expression will be art because of the freedom it gives me. I have the ability to create what I want and nobody has the right to limit me because it is an expression of myself. I’m stepping out of the box I have been forced to live in and I am living for me. I am creating for myself. This is my life and it is my art; it is what I make it, not what you want it to be.
