Array ( [sid] => 183929 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Always More [time] => 2017-02-17 00:39:03 [hometext] => Do you have what you want? [bodytext] => No one wants what they have got;
We long to be what we are not;
Believing we deserve much more;
Than we had the day before!

Everyone has nourished doubts;
Of joining up or getting out;
Witness here the mind at play;
Does it seem to you this way?

Marrieds wish to be unwed
Singles want to share their bed;
Youngsters rush to be mature;
Seniors pray to just endure!

The poor think money sets them free;
But wealth needs guarding constantly!
Beggars long to have a home;
But homebodies would rather roam!

Travelers miss familiar faces;
Homebounds crave exotic places!
Workers want to be retired;
The jobless pray that they’ll be hired.

Actors crave their privacy;
But dont ignore them; no sir-ree!
Students long to graduate;
Alumni come to celebrate.

Your view of jail depends upon;
Which side of the bars you’re on!
The stronger is our malcontent;
The more improvements we invent!

Progress comes from wanting more;
Stronger, faster than before!
Frustration and entitlement;
Fuel many fine accomplishments!

We never would have gotten far;
Had we been happy as we are!
To generations fraught with angst;
Our fond and everlasting thanks! [comments] => 5 [counter] => 301 [topic] => 60 [informant] => softerware [notes] => [ihome] => 0 [alanguage] => english [acomm] => 0 [haspoll] => 0 [pollID] => 0 [score] => 0 [ratings] => 0 [editpoem] => 1 [associated] => [topicname] => insomniac )

Brilliant as always. You hit the nail on the head, and it/'/s a damn sad nail and a damn hammer, burr thankfully, such a truism is only as impactful as we allow it to gain purchase.

For this poet, I see a wee bit of myself in your words, but blessedly have aligned my head on my shoulders with a small degree of precision; this after a careful de-insertion from the posterior portion of my physicality in which it has spent the better part of my life.

I just came back to this site after not being able to access it for ages and nice to see you/'/re still around. You captured the sentiment of the old adage of the grass being greener on the other side. Very nice write.

On a side note. Did you have a chunk of your poems deleted?
