One of life’s greatest tragedies

Is that you can’t choose

Your desires.

You can be what you want

But not want what you are.

Work your whole life to get there

Only to find you now want here not there.

Marry the girl with green eyes

Only to find she can’t engage you

Like the brown-eyed girl.

It’s the cruelest irony

To get what you wanted

When wanted isn’t want.
