I Need To Want

I Need To Want

A Poem by PoeticFury



I have, and need to pay bills...

When I want to save this world.

I want to be a leader.

Although I have, and need to follow someone else and their rules.

I want to keep going in life with work and school.

Although people need certain people to work, and need to collect money for education to do their jobs.

I need to turn the other cheek with battles I can't win.

When I want to help myself.

I need to quit believing in what I want?

While my folks tell me sometime I have no choice to put up with this world, and all of its bowl s**t.

I need to deal with the hand I was dealt?

When I want to better my life, and know that I can do so much better.

To make sure that no one has to feel the way that I sometime do, or the way that I have felt.

I only want what I can't have, and need what I don't want.

I need to let people run over me. I need to kiss up to people to get to the top.

When I want to earn my way to the top in this world, but basically I have to look like a punk?

I need to mess over others to get my way.

When I want to love, and help others up, and show them down the path of life. On it I wish they can stay.

I need to stop downing myself.

I want to stop asking all of these questions.

I need and want to live, but how can I?

When all that is left is nothing, but a troubled past that is taking us out everyday with slow compression?

I want to love, but I need to hurt?

I want what I dream, but I can't get to the brass ring.

I need and want to grab life by the throat, and that I will do.

Is their anyone who needs... or wants to come with me?

Heaven has no fury like a writer with emotion. I love writing more than I love life. Why? Cause writing is my life, and without it I have no life. I enjoy music, and meeting new people. Also like most.. more..
