What the Heart Needs, the Heart Desires


Friendship, compassion, love,
dreams, hopes.
None of which we can control.

It's hard to accept,
You can't always have what the heart needs,
heartache.

The friend (pet) that leaves your life,
loneliness.
Sufferings and misfortunes of others you can't fix,
sadness.
The love that doesn't love you back,
yet you continue to yearn, emptiness.
The dreams that never come true, failure.
Hope shatters when all the above fails,
worthlessness.

Why is life so hard?

We were created to love, have compassion,
and live for our dreams.
