Need: a Careless Word

Sat, 04/09/2016 - 15:59 -- Sgak

Need is a careless word. We need

78.09% nitrogen,

20.95% oxygen,

0.93% argon,

0.039% carbon dioxide,

0.003% other gasses,

and varying amounts of water vapor. We need

a birth giver. We need

the fertilization of an egg. We need

homeostasis, resperation, and excretion.

Just google Maslow's heirarchy of needs.

 

 

Want is also pathetic. We want

mental stimulation,

sleep,

love,

beauty,

youth,

and protection. We want

a mother. We want

a father. We want

good health, good food, a good life.

Our basic wants and needs are all the same.

 

Desires are stronger. I desire to

climb mountains,

inspire happiness,

break down hate,

build up love,

prevent fear,

and shatter glass ceilings so that they can never be rebuilt. I desire to

put the world into color and make everyone see the beauty. I desire to

turn pain into a stained glass, visible and breakable. 

I desire to reveal all the light in the world that we cannot see, and make it shine all the brighter.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
