It Is In The Knowing - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The getting what I want,
Doesn't get any easier.
I face obstacles on a daily basis,
Hoping to chase my wanting away.
And those obstacles presented,
Only test the strength of my patience.

However...
The knowing what I want,
Has always been for me quite easy.
And even today...
The taste of what I want,
Stays.

It is in the knowing,
That keeps me hungry...
And motivates my focus.
Not the wanting!
The wanting I've always known,
With desire to get from a doing.
