Emptiness

All of us have an emptiness within longing for something more.
Sometimes we aren’t sure, just something to adore.

A hole so big it seems impossible to fill yet so tiny the simple truth
is all that’s needed to do.

Is wealth what you seek and all that it can keep?
Is it glory and honor and all its prestige?
Is it some other empty dream lurking after you
only to gratify but not to satisfy?

Our hearts are like a jigsaw puzzle. No matter how hard we
try to force a wrong piece. It will never justify the lie that wanna be.
