Seeking 'It'...


What is it that I long for?

What is it I seek?

Name and Fame I am shy of

Money and power I don't need..

Yet there is something just outside my grasp

Something that I want for..

But just cant seem to clasp

I know when I have "it"

I will be more complete

But what that "it" is

I just don't understand

Is it possible to find "it"?

When I don't even know, its name

How long will ‘it' elude me

I am tiring of this game…

My words just pour out and

I watch them mesmerized

somewhere, somehow, sometime

I am bound to realize..

what is it I long for

What is it I seek..

I wish someone would tell me

Does "it" even exist?

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
