Desire -38th Good Word of the “Good Words” Project

Desire is the 38th Good Word in Jo Goldsmith’s Good Words Project, words she gives us a new word weekly to help us realize that if we live by these words and practice them, we will become better people and better writers.

This is Jo’s calling to promote the work of unknown writers to bring us recognition, to help us become the best writers we can be.

The 38th week’s good word in Desire, it is my sincere desire to complete the Good Words Project.

I promised Jo that I would write a poem for each “Good Word” and although I am a little behind, I have kept and will keep my promise.

Desire what does it means?


  • Want
  • Wish
  • Longing

Desire – What is Your Heart’s Desire?

© by Shyron Shenko

If you could have your heart’s desire

Just what would you require?

What would it be?

The riches of the world

Or peace for you and me?

What is Your Heart’s Desire?

To end all hunger, to end all wars

For the homeless,

Would you take a stand?

And extend a helping hand

What is Your Heart’s Desire?

To set the world on fire

Instead of lending a helping hand

To those whose problems are so dire

Or live a life of greed and never think of others needs

What is my heart’s desire?

What is my heart’s desire?

To see peace, in our country;

In our lifetime; in our world and in our lands

Where anyone who needs it, gets a helping hand?
