Between what we want and what we need

The contrast has never been clearer indeed

The pandemic and its aftermath have unveiled

How we have been overtaken by greed, how we have failed

To remember that human needs are but few

Most “needs” are just wants crying “me too”..


I for one, had never thought I would find

My ambition and possessions misaligned

Now I see my ambition and efforts were (mis)directed

At acquiring more objects- a practice I have now rejected

In favor of assets rather intangible

I focus on growth in spheres philosophical

My mind’s horizons I want to expand

More of the universe I want to understand

My soul should take deeper dives to explore

The abstract universe, there is so much more

To acquire except objects materialistic

I aim to achieve Nirvana as a mystic…
