We feed ourselves lies
But we’re starving for truth
We crave the loudness of life
But we’re starving for inner silence
We desire sex, passion, romance
But we’re starving to be understood
We long to be like everyone else
But we’re starving to be accepted for our differences
We cry out for justice
But we’re starving for peace
We thirst for simple answers
But we’re starving for complex wisdom
We are all starving.
We fill ourselves with what is easy
When what we really want
Often requires work
And because we are content with the shallow
We can never be truly full
We are all starving….
we are all starving….
