Poem: The need and the want!

Updated on January 5, 2012

The Need and the want!

I sincerely hope the the message intend, is the only one that will be being sincerely conveyed, and if for any reason it is not, instead of a comment please send a question , it will be my absolute pleasure...Bless.

Look at us how

selfish we are

look at how stuck

and buried

in our past

at we sit steadfast

in our old ways

That we are allowing

even an issue that's

as important to us

as an understanding

of the difference

Between something

of such great

Importance and

great magnitude

and equal urgency

As understanding

what to us is

the real meaning of

Want and the need

In looking at it

Some how

it don’t seem

to faze us much.

And now as it was

in the beginning

equally as expected

so shall it be

in the beginning

of the predicted end.

And now here goes

Our children

They are lost

in this Ill-gotten and

false snse of

of wayward ambition

They have not

as yet begin

to even fathom

the very slightest

about their own

through creation.

They are consciously

aware that they have

never been

This way before.

Somehow they are

not convinced

to listen to their Parents

Bluntly refusing help

Having absolutely

no clue about

which way to go

On their way out

of daddy’s door.

The very first words

out their mouths

As they ignorantly say

Because they want to!

Without any real clue.

the smart thing to do

will be to take a

conscious look around

see some real way

one could get to know

About this need?

Come little daughters

and sons

Take a look at

some around you

even your own friends

the way that they

have ended up

with a life of suffering

gotten absolutely none!

How could that be

you might want to ask

or make better, answer!

They were your friends

And just likle you

they also have got

their own parents too

this could only be

because there are

many others In this world

That are not as

fortunate as you are

There are also some

unfair and selfish

Sons and daughters

being foolishly selfish

and disrespectful

simply wanting

everything their way.

Quite foolish!

they don't know!

Quite selfish!

Never ever been

this way before

now even more sure

than their parents.

never wanting to share

Setting themselves up

that which awaits

can only be dooms day

Listen up, children

these lessons are free!

Think about this

How old are

your parents?

Ok If after fifty years

Here yoiu are

together with them.

While they are still

paying for this house

in which you live

Don’t you have many

curious questions

something that will

let your mom and dad

know that their child

is wisely thinking.

Let me take a look

at my own self

while I was a young boy

Growing up with

my parents

Quickly I needed to know

Why my mom and dad

even wanted me.

But I could never ask

Figuring out things

from what I saw

I knew that they both

had to have been

working real hard

and then it had to

have been even harder

for then with me

It’s was not their fault

I was there to bring

added strength and joy

a reason!

So how could I ever

grow up not being.

is my best chance at

saying thanks!

It was not a fault at all

If it was going to be

anybody's it would

quite easily have to be

my own fault

that would now be

again coming

Around only to haunt

Children must almost

immediately and

without question

start working out

The truthful difference

there is between the

Need and the want!

Be respectful

don't slam that door

talk to your parents

They are the ones

Who have traveled

This way before

So much so That

They have already

went ahead started

Promising more!

Love that’s filled

with possibilities

Made even more eminent

with their assurance

Of solid parental care

and sincere reason for

bringing you here.

with an unselfish belief

In the Most High God

Praying for mercy

for innocent blessings

sharing the joy

of having another to

continue our greatful way

great sine and daughters

could only be

blessings from above.

Your parents went ahead

And blazed a trail

insuring that you

Never to be like those

kids in these pictures

never to let you feel

the full extent of the

burn one receives

When life’s fire

starts as usual blazing

The rebellious ones tails

They have now done

all the work

You should never fail

Using faith and hope.

Can you try figuring

What if they had not!

selfishly said nope!

how it might have looked

For those parents

while only watching

what has become of

their own kids

for not trusting

their own parents

whom the Most High God

have unmistakably

chosen to lead

their upcoming way

and orded them

to do so correctly

So the you kids don't

succumb, or fall victim

in the way simplar

to that as many of their

Own friends have

while living today.

There are also parents

Who went on to placed

their children at the mercy

Of uncles and aunts

A show of ignorance

their fault not knowing

the differences between

The need and the want!

      I know that it was always in you , I knew nothing of your religious background when we met , sometimes listening to your comments , I can feel where you heart is , but it's a life that cause lifelong insecurity, so the battle is not easy for those like you. But trod on fearlessly.

      Thanks again for adding what is in no doubt the analysis of that piece.

      It's one of those catchy words whose e misuse leads to some great perils in life. Usually un noticed.

      I know you are going ahead strong, and you know that's what it takes.

      Walk good

      That's one of the reasons why we suffer Sky, we haven't learned the difference between a want and a need and often times we give to the want because it feel good and more lustful. Our need is not necessarily what we want.

      Thank you very much Debbie. It is that what you feel , which was once flowing among mankind , then cam greed and all hell broke loose from those two, but it is promised that it will one be fixed and that's where I am quite proud of your comment , it was love that usually fixed everything now it's that same love which is being blamed but there is one assurance to confirm , that you and many others are firmly on the chosen and correct path , cause once exercised , it feels so right.

      So let not your heart be troubled Debbie, once you feel it then you too, is love. I am happy that you love the song, it's one of my all time favorites.

      It shall be well!

      Thanks for such a considerate and heartfelt comment.

      You put it quite well perspycacious one of the comments I shall remember for a very long time . I truly don't have an answer for your question , I don't no , but I am extremely happy with the observation that you made . Thank You Sir.

      Fir a few minutes, jusyt laying thinking about this life and it again came to me , if the next great phenomenon was the happen in that same land , where where human children and starving , of if the discovery of the wonder drug was there , will that be what it takes. A deal ! How about human decency.

      The guy who shot the first picture , eventually killed himself.

      Thanks for reading and such a wonderful in the human spirit comment.

      Some of us feed our pets so well, while the children of other parents are dying in their arms. How do Christians arrive at such decisions?

      Thank you sincerely brethren Frank , it's these ways that are being lost rather fast that gives me the energy to roll on.

      It simply takes different looks in different places. One may be starving over here , but a kid as you comment , wants to fight at parents for something else over here, and a kid is divorcing parents another place, so what about a future with parents less kids , can you see that direction , it started long ago.

      I will fight for those who because of ignorance , is getting it all wrong , because they are the start of the continuing ignorance.

      Thanks again Frank.

      See the picture.

      Man Sky.. the pictures were just too much for me to take.. and then you look at the kids nowawdays or here angry sad and depressed because they didn't get an I-4 phone or an I pad.. some even feel bed when they got only clothes instead of money or expensive gifts for the holidays.. this is a rude awakening.. too bad they don't see it.. or choose not to see it great Hub my friend.. it hits the mark
