Yearning: Poem 2

To yearn ; the longing for

Our deepest desires to be seen,

To be accepted and loved

To have the world not mean.

Yearning and longing for love

Truth and respect,

In a world more filled

With greed and neglect.


Parents leave children

To fight on their own,

With hunger for love

To be all that they’ve


We yearn and want what

Most of us cannot get,

May it be love , honor

Even a hint of respect.


Yearning to feel passion

Love the connection to another,

May it be true love

Or a sister or brother,

We yearn for connection

In a world so big and strong,

We all want it to go right

When often it goes so wrong.
