Desires

Updated on August 14, 2013

Desire is a want,

Desire could be a longing,

Desire makes one need.

----------------------------------------------------

Desire drives us mad,

Desire makes us fixated,

Desire is senseless!

------------------------------------------------------

Desire makes a soul,

Idiotic and extreme;

Revise your desires.

-----------------------------------------------------

Make life down-to-earth,

Pursue your dreams and aim high,

But you stay grounded!

------------------------------------------------------

Live in harmony

If destined, will come our way.

We will get our share!

--------------------------------------------------------

      Came back around to read these--desire is always a thorny issue for me--covetous being that I am--so much wisdom in these pieces

      @ahorseback...well said indeed...lol

      woman thankfully gets to choose something ;-)

      but, well said...desire is an act of pure desperation in any soul.

      Ruchira , I always felt that desire was a thing of pure desperation in man. Someone once said to me , A woman choses and a man waits !.......:-}

      Hello Manoj,

      I was in my best of moods and best of spirits while writing this Haiku :)

      Desires sure help drive a soul but, we should not be after it and change our life 'cause of it. IF it is destined, it will come our way or else let's pick up the pieces and walk our way!

      Thanks for your insight in the above! Appreciate it!

      Hi Raci,

      You sure can desire but, don't crave it for so much that it changes your life. If it's destined, it will come your way!

      Wishing you peace and joy, my friend!

      Beautiful Senryu... I'm guessing you mean "if it's meant to be it will be."

      I enjoyed reading it.

    • makusr profile image

      Manoj Kumar Srivastava 6 years ago from India

      Ruchira I don't know in which mood you have written this piece. Melancholy rules here. I am, because I desire. I will be not myself, if I do not desire. Desires propel me, desires make me do the unthinkable, desires make me aspire, desires make me understand love, desire makes me love myself. You say revise your desires. How can I? I cannot control my desires. They are my inner feelings. Be foolish enough to desire but sane enough not to live in them. This is great as always. Thanks friend for a lovely hub.

      What desire shall I desire, if she comes to me,

      A desire which remains unfulfilled lifelong,

      That desire I propose to desire for.

      Manoj
