My Hearts Desire - Poem by Sydnii Ray

My heart’s desire
A widespread idea
What do I really want?
Such a fickle thing.
To feel safe?
It can never last.
A life so drab
To give?
But to what extent,
What will I have left?
Is there anything more skin deep?
To be beautiful?
But what is beauty really.
What I really want…
I guess I will Just have to see.

    A heart's desire
    is what to find
    But you have to chose
    what you really want
    a moment of desire
    or an everlasting bliss
    Then you'll know
    what you really desire
    And what will give you peace....

    Nice poem,
