(POETRY) In the rapid stream of greed

 

The thing I really want-
Is to want the things I truly want
The need, the drive
The thing that fuels the engine
Of the vehicle of life-

Of all the things I hate
I hate to hate the things I hate
People, places, things
The paint on the canvas
To which all can relate-

The thing I truly need
Is to need the things I really need
Water, love, compassion
The preserver on the boat
In the rapid stream of greed
