Poem: Hunger.

I have a hunger

For something lavish.

Something decadent.

Something worth having.


I hunger for something

That would shake tables,

And raise eyebrows.

When they see that

I am able


To do the extraordinary.

To be more than regular.

To break boundaries.

To be really spectacular.


The hunger drives me,

I feel it in my spirit.

And even when I’m full,

I’ll never stop working for it.


I’ll never quit,

I’ll never forfeit.

Why hunger for the sun,

If you can’t take the heat?
