A MEANINGFUL DESIRE

 A MEANINGFUL DESIRE

Human nature is never satisfied
temporal fulfilments we evaluate and try
these things may serve their use
inexhaustible riches we so oft’ confuse

 generous gifts are open-handedly bestowed
our appetites are whetted—seldom slowed
contentment remains an elusive pleasure
stubbornly we pursue all earthly treasure

our fun-filled ,self-styled life—insane
wearily penetrating absurdities of life—inane
negating souls try unearth significance –require
eternal cravings provide--solitary meaningful desire

    When one is unable to value the little things, the big things will never be enough for them. This was a very strong piece.

    Just philosophical and beautiful! Thought-provoking! Thank you! We write along the same lines! Thank you for reading Reincarnation, try know thyself, if time allows!
