your body knows a hunger that’s been there forever

the hunger is desire
it is the gasoline
that gets you to your dreams on time
it isn’t the ends
it is the means

we might think
we’re heading in a certain direction
or towards a certain goal
but we usually don’t end up there
not right there
or if we do
it’s not at all what we thought

which is okay

sometimes the best meal
is the one we thought we didn’t want
the dinner that eats us for breakfast
and gives us our naked lunch

we don’t always need to know
which way we’re going
to move forward
in fact
sometimes it helps not to

if we knew where we needed to end up
we might never make the first step
