Wanting




Decisions to be taken

one more time

Take them away from me

and I’ll chase them again

one more time


Often a never ending circling journey

meeting the sharing point

In between who I am and who I want to become


But why? Is being here and now not enough?


Apparently not…


What do you want to be when you grow up?


What do you want for Christmas?


And so on…


Everyday wish list

Being born every morning


Toxic desires

clouding up the

The bright day of the present

moment

The bright night of our slow

breath

Drifting us away from

the simple desires

Changing them into obsessions

washing away the purity

of a simple moment,

Corrupting the next one,


So we chase and want and desire


A journey going the right way, at the right pace, toward the right place
