Longing for nought

Longing to be
all you can be.
A coin in a fountain
or a fish in the sea.

Longing to dream
all you can dream.
The top of the mountain
or the flight of the bee.

Longing to sing
all you can sing.
A shout in the darkness
or the whisper of light.

Longing to see
all you can see.
An angel in majesty
or the devil in night.

Longing to be
and striving for what?
Longing to live
and dying for nought.

One thought on “Longing for nought

  1. Working so hard, so you can work so hard. Not working to live but living to work. What do you get if you gain the whole world but yet lose your soul?
