Want v. Need

I need to go running

Run out to the edge and just look out and actually

see

Because you can see so much more from the edge

I need to see where I am

where I'm going

because I can't

I need coffee

I need direction

I need addiction

I need more friends

new faces

Or maybe just to know my friends better

Or to make them know me

I need to run

But I'm stuck

I need education to thrive

feel alive

but mostly just knowledge to survive

That sounds contrived, but it's true

And it's not happening like I need it to

I need more me

or to figure out what that means

I need greatness

to stop

sitting still

simply being

I need to stop thinking and start

learning again

but then again

maybe I just need sleep
