Wants and Needs

A Gift and a Curse

Wants and Needs

A want is a like.

A need is a must.

More often or not we mix these two up.

Free will is a Gift.

Free will is a Curse.

We want what we need.

We need what we want.

What we want we can't have.

What we can't have we can't afford.

What we can't afford we don't need.

Free will is a Gift.

Free will is a Curse.

What we need can be afforded to us.

We need to be safe, we need to be clean,

we need to understand our wants are not our needs.

Free will is a Gift.

Free will is a Curse.
