This Longing, This Ache


This longing, this ache,
this pulsing
of the deepest
part of who you are
is the reason why you're here.
Do not confuse it with desire.
Desire is wanting
what you don't have.
Longing is wanting
what you do.

You can be talked out of desire, but you can't be talked out of longing.
