wishing away a
secluded life
of being useful to people
to whom
it is easy to do good,
i kept walking
on the paved roads
of selfish

wishing of work
which one hopes
may be of some use,
i kept moving
my fingers
trying hard to open
the empty drawers
of greed

wishing in the
for the perfect
i kept denying
everything exits
everything is

but then
i stopped
ceased my work
and looked

wishing to be
i found,
if you want to
be happy,

  1. if one casts away their negativity and disbeliefs, they truly can achieve something far more than what they desire. Maybe if we stopped wishing, it might just all come to us. That is, the things we really want. But, that’s the hardest thing, isn’t it.
    I recently started a blog here, do follow for upcoming posts!

  2. What drew me to your site was your catchphrase:

    truth is like

    most people

    hate poetry.”

    I loved that!! I’m a poet as well, and later today I’m hoping to put up 1 or 2 poems for feedback and criticism: one of my first poems and a later one. Could you let me know what you think? Most of my poetry does rhythm and has a kind flow to it, but I’ve been writing poems for 4 years now and my style has begun to change for the better I believe. Again loved your posts and I look forward to reading more of your work!

  3. What drew me to your site was your catchphrase. I’m a poet as well, and I’m going to be posting 2 of my poems later today: one of my earlier ones and a recent one. Could you provide some feedback and criticism for me. Although I have been writing poetry for 4 years now, I see that my style has changed slightly and I wanted to see if others could tell as well. Maybe I could get some helpful tips from you. Again, I really liked this poem and I look forward to reading more of your work!
