Monday Poetry

Desire, a need for more
Yet should I not be happy
With what I've got?

Searching the Stars
I seek, I know not what
Don't I have it all?

Bobbing along, when I want to rush
Adventure coursing through my veins
Living life on the edge.

When did I become so staid
Hidebound and unsure
Settling instead of seeking?

There you go folks, my first attempt at Rhi's Monday Poetry Train.

It speaks to me. It also makes me want to do something about it, now that it's been brought to my attention.

I think it's the human drive to want more than we have that keeps us from stagnating. Sometimes we become focused on material things, which isn't good. I think it'd be better if people drove themselves toward more enlightenment, more happiness.

Glad you're on the Train, Anne. You fit in well.

i love it Anne!! and completely relate to it. I think it's one of the reasons i continue to shove myself outside my comfort zone to offset that feeling that i've wrapped myself in complacency.
if i was comfortable where i'm at i wouldn't take idiotic risks...
but maybe a little discomfort, a little itch for something else is a good thing.
