At the end of the day

At the end of the day
My wants are comfort.
Each reflection of my soul
yearns for comfort
Each soul searches
not every soul is satisfied
At the end of the day
Each yearning is different
Some yearn for fame
while others for money
Yet the soul needs
basic nutrition
Love, loyalty, humor
This brings peace
even in the midst
of the worlds absurdity
some yearning
creates the storm
Once the storm settles
The soul realizes
Needs and wants
Do not always line up
Bring on the peace
Let my soul be still.
