Don’t you desire…

There were qualities and possessions I had admired

There was much that my impressionable mind had desired

Everything I lusted after eluded me

As I chased my desires passionately

Since those goals never seemed to be in sight

Gradually I started giving up the fight..

I kept my head down and did what I needed to

But never thought I would achieve a breakthrough

**

Thus detached from my desires, focused on results I was not

Going through the process surprising outcomes brought

What I had thirsted for, admired, desired

I seemed to have achieved- I had not required

Burning ambition or obsession, instead

Separating the journey and destination seemed to work best

At least for me- while I enjoyed the journey

I was subconsciously preparing for ultimate victory…

**

The desire to succeed makes you afraid to the core

Thus detachment from the outcome has some allure

When I want something, I try my best

To let go, trusting a higher power to figure out the rest..
