enough

it wasn’t enough

that i had all i ever dreamed of

it wasn’t enough

that i had

a partner

a child

a home

it wasn’t enough

that i was always employed

always healthy

always having a place to go

it wasn’t enough

that i never had

one day of hunger

one night of cold

one day of heat

one night of wanting

one day of going without

the heart is always hungry

always wanting

always craving

always demanding

always seeking

always dreaming

always wishing

nothing was

nothing is

nothing ever will be

Enough.

  1. Vonita I’m afraid that’s being human. We are either prideful or in dispair. Only for mere moments do we seem to be able to exist in the middle, in happiness. I hope things are better since this. Tomorrow is always a new day and new chance to strive for the Middle road. Have a Happy New Year!
