Desire

One
wants
from
being
want-
ing;
lacking
brings
longing.

But
the
urge
to
have reaches
out
and
never
gets

to
a
last-
ing
satisfaction;
one
only
wants
more.

How
can
one
get
fulfillment
that
won’t
fade
away?

When
one
wants
not
want-
ing,
the
fire
cools,

the
mind
calms,
and
limp
goes
the
body.
