Hi everyone, I hope you’re all having a great day and that you’re succeeding in whatever it is that you’re doing. I’m sharing a poem today and I hope you enjoy it.


There is a hunger that lives within me
A primal, instinctual drive
A force propelling me forward
My reason for staying alive

It fills every waking moment
It’s behind my every thought
And at times, it keeps me up at night
Leaving me overwrought

It’s demanding and insatiable
Relentless in its need
It gets stronger by the minute
Until I give in and feed

But the hunger is never happy
Never contented or curtailed
Though I’ll always fight against it
Until it’s might has paled

As always, thanks for spending your time with my words, I really do appreciate it.

Until next time,
