Poem: Longing For

By Sadaf R.

Her life sweeps through the nothingness
And everything she wasn’t prepared for;
Life is such a mystery when it comes to life
And she kept looking for everything she was longing for

I hate to see her take that path,
What could it be that she’s looking for?
She has everything she can imagine of,
But she questions the love, the people she’s been longing for.

Does life really change for an ordinary being?
Because I’ve found everything I was longing for.
and I know I’ll lose it before I’ll have the chance to grab it
and once again, I’ll lose everything I was longing for.
