Desire - Poem by Jay P Narain

Men always desire for women,
Women desire what men desire,
Desire only seems to be fulfillment postponed,
It is the dream of the lust in our hearts adored.

The fire of desires ravages in our minds,
The flames seem to erupt scorching the entire universe,
The desires have no end in sight,
The waves of desires cascade endlessly on the shores of life.

Desire and enjoy not the things we have,
Always looking forward to things we don't have,
Is it the lust or greed in our soul?
Or is it the dream or an endless lifelong goal?

The lack of desire, I may not desire,
The life will be dull, the dreams will be void,
The control of my desire, I may admire,
The life will be full, the happiness will be achieved.
