Desire


Is my want a desire?
Is it limitless?
Why do I become angry and agitated?
Why do I become bitter and resentful?
You are no toy
To fulfill my desire.
Why do I desire you?
Is it your virtue, your purity?
Is it your love or your beauty?
Or, Are you just my spiritual joy.
Drilled into my head
Better to be
Kind and generous
Loving and considerate
I console myself
There is something better waiting for me
Much better than fulfilling my desires.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

But if it had to perish twice,
