Willing to Want

Theme and Variations ~ Philip Brent Harris

~~~~~

While I wait, I watch and I wonder,

Periodic people passing by I ponder.

Makes me mull missing motivation,

As I await an answer with anticipation.

My path pursued sans my past passion.

Where would it, in weakness, wander?

Am I in anyway able to grasp it again?

Troublesome times transpire truthfully

Mindful many mosey missing masks.

Does it depict darkness’ desire for day?

Constantly chasing yet never capturing,

Relentlessly; reminder worth repeating.

While I wax wistful, wishing to will it;

Would wise words wait, wanting what?

Learning language lessens losing, loss.

Lasting lesson; listening limits love lost.

Pity, people persistently punish the past.

Why are we willing to want without end?
