All I Need?

All that one needs, is it a material or a possession?

Is it a belief or a loved one to share one's expressions?

Nay, one thing I must live with, one thing I personally seek,

is the earthly materials that let me live week to week.

The basis of life from which me are made,

the elements from space have come and stayed.

Is this really the one thing that I need?

Or am I just sewing philosophy like Plato on speed?

Aye, for the one thing humans want,

is the acceptance of others, and maybe a croissant.

This poem is about: 
Me
