Yesterday I was told I have a hungry soul. True story. Today, I thought about it, embraced it and the only way to describe it came out on paper. Today, amidst all the craziness of life, I wish the world a happy day and a hungry soul.
This soul lingers above contentment
A piece of satisfaction waits but oceans away.
A torn book, a letter read, a beating heart
These will suffice.
Happiness strokes only as water on a ducks back
The moment before thought escapes tip of tongue
The moment risen cheeks and curved lips come back to rest in place
A shadow blocks the light, the weakest link breaks away
A pocket starves an empty stomach
These will not suffice.
Laughter teases vocal chords, the ocean tickles the shore
Both will wash away, neither will remain.
And this soul lingers above contentment
The breath of life waits but oceans away
Hope will guide the hungry soul
Hope will guide this hungry soul
Contentment will escape…
