To Want - Poem by Sandra Feldman

I want, I want,
Not even you,
Know what you want,
And once you have it,
Does if bring happiness?
Or once it's yours,
You couldn't care less.

    It's a very true statement that people continue to pursue what they want but aren't satisfied when found. Nice sequel Sandra. (Report)Reply
