Want

What is it in this world that is so desperately sought after
Is it the soft kiss of a loved one,
Is it the desire of success,
Is it the drive for the perfect life,
Is it the need to feel appreciated,
Is it the need to be accepted,
One or all of these could be what drives us,
Every single day,
Its all what we want in some way, shape or form,

All I want in this world is…
To find my feet,
To find my niche,
To be a functioning cog in the engine,
To be myself,

Is that too much too ask,
Perhaps, perhaps not,
Maybe by simply asking I am finding all that I want,

But in truth that is not what I want,
All I want truly is…
To make this world a better place,
Not just for me,
But for everyone,
Just try for a fairer place,
A more united place,
Where peace, love and unity,
Reigns supreme,

The reality of the matter,
Simply proves that this can and will,
Sadly never happen,
There will always be those less fortunate,
Its human nature,
It is the way its meant to be,

But we can still try,
Just in case it is possible,
The battle must be fought,
It must go on,
Or all is lost,

No matter what I could possible imagine to have,
No matter the riches,
No matter the dreams,
I would pass it all up,
Just to see you smile,
Just don’t hate me for wanting to do so

Want
