Prompt 178: Need

Prema of An Inner Space brings us this week's prompt, need. Here is her poem:

Needs…. Needs….
Needs….and Needs….
This….. That……..
This way…..That way…..
This much…..and That much
Oh………… Never Enough!

Tired of seeking
Gasping for breath
Gave up…
Sat down …..
For a rest pause!

The pause not only gave rest,
But also peace and a new direction.
Leading to the silence deep within
‘What was never sought for!’

Seeking stopped...!
