What do you desire?

via Daily Prompt: Desire

desire3

 

What does your heart desire-

If I asked you,

Would you have an answer?

 

What are your 3 wishes-

If I asked you,

Would you have an answer?

 

Is it love, money, happiness that you aspire?

Fame, respect, peace that you want to acquire?

Or power, comfort, health that you require?

 

If you were allowed just three-

Would you be able to tell me?

And once you do, would you not think of the other three?

 

Is it a wonder then that you still look around,

Is it a wonder then that you have not yet found-

For it is by confusion and mediocrity that you are bound…

 

Ask yourself  NOW,

What is it that I truly desire?

 

Your answer will pave the way,

And prod you on, every single day,

It will keep you warm -the burning fire,

Dispel the darkness -fulfilling your heart’s deepest desire.
