The end of this month always descends upon me too soon and surprises me, even though I'm keeping track of the days. Tomorrow is the final prompt of the month. On Tuesday morning, I'll share a "What's Next" post.
For today’s prompt, take the phrase "Wanting (blank)," replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles could include: "Wanting Less Leftovers," "Wanting More Leftovers," "Wanting All the Leftovers," "Wanting a Second Chance at Creating Possible Titles," and/or "Wanting to Leave Making Titles Up to You."
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Wanting Blank Poem:
In the end, it is always me
chasing the fish into the sea
and calling out, "Be free! Be free!"
Be free to swim the Tennessee
or splash through the Mississippi
belonging to the nobody
wanting myself especially
to feel pure joy without a fee
for ever after you will see
is just another busy bee.
