Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday 16 May 2020

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “want.” Make the word “want” the first, second, or third word of your post. Have fun!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley!


My wants are numerous, my needs just a few

I spend my life running after what I want

Ignoring my needs to the point of blatant neglect

What is the difference you may ask

I need things that keep me, body and mind healthy

I need nourishment for both to prosper

I need enlightenment to feed my deprived soul

I need hope, joy, light, and an open mind to see

I don’t need to fulfill all that I want

Because it just distracts me for what I really need

The wants for more

The want for latest

The want to be the richest, cleverest, or prettiest

All are the trappings which I try to acquire

To hide my shriveled soul behind

The soul that is dying because I don’t look after it’s needs
