Those Who Want​

first you wanted something. 

then you wanted something else. 

when you wanted something else 

you realized how daunting wanting was. 

but you still wanted. 

you needed to want something. 

 

most people want something. 

most people can’t want nothing. 

 

living and wanting is hard. 

wanting to live is sometimes harder. 

 

want slips into your bed at night and asks you to need it. 

want will want for days. 

want will want for nothing at all. 

want will rise and fall with the seasons. 

want will smile and tease you. 

 

when you have wanted for long enough, 

you will start to rise out of bed, 

look around, 

and tell yourself,

i wanted this.
