A Haiku - Yearnings

Updated on April 9, 2015

Yearning is not always for what we cannot have.

A longing desire, a yearning for what is not...yet.

Yearn can also mean "to feel pity."



"Better World" my yearn.

Strife and peril may they cease.

Enough! Let us be.

      Yearning only makes it happen faster (or be ruled out), if we act on what could potentially make it happen.

      Does yearning make it happen that much faster? I sure hope so.
