What We Really Want #poem

We vainly seek connection
When what we really want
Is to find peace within us.
We cast about, update and post
To put forth our best self
And affirm in the eyes of others
When what we really want
Is to know that we are loved.
We make light and share a song,
We pour ourselves out, out,
When what we really want
Is to feel filled up with truth.
We look at it, and it disappoints,
Because what we really want
Is the impossible end of desire.
