Why is it

that when we think we need something more than anything

We don’t get it

And when we’ve learned to live without it

for so long

it shows up

unasked

It’s then

that we question

if it’s even good for us

We quit caring years ago

and we kept on living

for reasons that can’t be won

Still,

we can invite these things inside

and accept them

for what they are

unnecessary

They become the things that others look at

when they see us

and their desires creep in

until they want what we used to want

They’ll strive and stop

but someone

like you or I

might continue

and they’ll forget their yearnings

in time

gaining

a reason why
