Want and Wishing

Inspired from a comment on irish katie by wilddesirechats

Below is wilddesirechats comment. I thank you for allowing me to use your words.
Wanting is a natural thing. It’s called ‘heart’s desires’. And you should never stop wanting for something, because then the flame will burn out.

This is from those words.

Want, as natural as breath itself
the longing for life’s wishes
not materialistic but for other
heart desires

Want, should never be forgotten
or left alone like the last
single flower in bloom
but opened and expressed

Want, to dream or believe we
can do, open minds and seek
our goal is to surely run along the path
not walk, encourage our dreams

Want, family, friendships, happiness
to carry love in our hearts
health in our bodies
and peace in our mind

Want, like smouldering embers
in the fire needs to be
sustained for if we relinquish it
like the flame it will slowly die

Want, like flowers have thirst
like fires need flame
or food for our hunger
needs to be quenched

Want, if we let it die, what do we have left
no eagerness to branch out with minds
slowly, like the flower, parts of us
like petals would fall away

float to the ground unnoticed

  1. Oh …see’s my name! lol. I think though you were asking Chey to use it? I am sure she would not mind *smiles*.

    She would ‘want’ you to use it for the lovely poem here. I think she’d like every stanza….nods nods.
