Wants

Someone once told me
“Separate your wants and needs,
 For wants is just momentarily.”

That stuck to me
Like a mantra, I should live with
For the rest of my life.

Praises and compliments,
They keep on coming in
While I keep my wants at bay.

“Needs is like air.”
But my rate line is stationary.
Don’t I need a shock?

My “temporary” wants.
The sight of it gave me sparks.
Do I really have to keep it at bay?
