Something More

Striving to be content.  
Everyday….striving. 
Ignore the yearning
The knowing - there is something more
There was supposed to be something more
Just beyond reach
If you can only remember you can have it
Desperate
Angry
Has time run out?
Is it too late? 

That mistake
That defining mistake
You knew it before it was made
How can you be whole now?
Unmake it.
If you have the courage 
Yes!
(In truth – no)

Most days you can simulate
Well-being
Ease
Substance
You wear expressions 
Suggestions really
And sometimes….
It shows –
When you believe
You were not meant for more
