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?
