Desire


For all that argument's sake,
Let me propagate
A subtle quote,
A short verse,
Which should initiate,
Perhaps narrate,
Or better imitate,
The true meaning of desire.
'Our desire is a true desire
When it desires to create
A better change
A drastic interchange
Of ideas and lives
Of minds and motives.
Which if it fails to do
Is then nothing but pitiable rue.'
