PAD 17

All I Want Is To Know

All I want

is to know
what I really want.
To see
the destination on a map,
highlighted in yellow,
circled in bright green ink,
a dozen possible journeys
to get me there.
I want it defined,
solid and clear,
a crystal in my hand,
loud and sharp,
a court room gavel
that hushes
the diversionary whims.
I want the voice I know,

whispering in my ear,
this is who you are.

Today's Poem A Day Challenge prompt was "all I want."

I appreciated this. That circle that keeps our minds spinning in need of destination. A solid point in which we can finally sigh a breath of relief and say...I'm here.

I wonder, if anyone ever achieves that?........
