Heart

November 2, 2015

They say the heart wants what it wants. Why does mine want just so damn much? Why couldn’t it settle for less?

Am I greedy? Ungrateful? Yearning for a life that’s impossible, yet spinning my wheels and getting burned out?

Or am I naive? Exposed to too much for my own good, destined to frustrate myself to the end?

Or am I broken? Filling a void from years past? Which one, of several?

There are actually some people who would rather just live life loving, spending time with their closest ones. Laughing, being happy and making others happy. And I’m willing to bet they’re the ones who get hundreds of people on their deathbed, genuinely missed by all. Is that where I need to be, instead?
