Understanding why

I enjoy intelligent conversation.
Hearing about current events.
Listening to others talk.

However my heart years for more.
I like to understand the "why."
I want to know why people do the things they do.

I also yearn to know what really interest someone.
Not the basic things like television shows or music,
but what really makes their heart run wild.

I want to know about goals, dreams, and desires.
Who they really are as a person.
What they really want to accomplish.

Not only with others, but with myself.
I want to understand why I do the things I do.
Why I care about the things I do.
Why I am here
and what I really want to accomplish.

It will be a journey,
difficult at times
but in the end I know it will be worth the pain.
