Poem : Want everyone and everything?

Updated on March 14, 2012

Want everyone and everything?

One of my heroes

Mr Bob Marley

Plain and truthful

speaking as he

would always be.

Said in one of his

featured on the

bottom "Want more"

Now you get

what you want do

you want more?

That’s how I now

observe us humans

are presently

speaking as I travel

this world over.

From a very early

age I have heard

And it took quite

a while but now I

truly understand

the difference between

Need and the want.

Because the "Why"

in the need and want

becomes quite simple

to decipher.

It’s foolish trying

to have it all.

when you understand

that the true


of want and the need

You will understand

that those who

wants all, they

have not even

done the research.

But why would

anyone even have

such a selfish

ambition or

irrational request?

Clearly there are

messed up people

in our world!

Greed is running


Jealousy is staring

at us

dead in the face

having all hopes

that we won’t


it’s advances.

It’s on a constant


To confuse and corrupt

those who are still

acting stubborn.

Like they are so

foolishly naive!

Why would you or

anyone ever need

everyone or even


The rule of life

clearly states!

Do onto others

as you would have

them do onto you.

You cannot carry


You were created with

only two hands.

Everything with make

you a greedy and

rebelliously selfish man

You might carry all of


But you don’t need


Because everyone

cannot be always

at your disposal

Another slavery!

Another holocaust

Another Pharaoh

Another stubborn

human Boss!

when do you need


The Most High


who created all


He gave men dominion

over all things

He said give unto

Caesar what is his!

What kind of

Caesar are you

if you are fearlessly

spitting in the face

of the Most High


When you know

It is then appointed

unto man

once to die but

after death would

no doubt be

that which most

of us humans

don’t even want

to think about,

This is the one

We dread !

To have to answer

The Most High God

Try make an excuse

another Lie Why?

Want everyone

and everything?

      Lol Thanks Eddy and I thought so too! lol But then I quickly remember and I laugh so I share lol.

      I am going to turn them into books so they shall be less confusing to both of us. Mother always use to say never put all you eggs in one basket, I have grown to learn that I better know what eggs are.

      What looks difficult for so many, and turns out so easy for others are the levels of difficulties that they put in themselves , that they would have to live with. When one learns to simplify , they have also learned to see the simplicity in difficulty.

      For I always say the largest man you would ever see was once a baby.

      Got it from Bob Marley , who got it from the scriptures. Which makes the best foods the simplest. Now the scientist are going to the poorest places to get answers

      I don't ask for much because every spring cleaning I'm reminded of the fact that I have too much and have nothing to do with all of it. Love Marley's music. God bless.

      Teaches thanks you and , don't ask me how I know . You are a very special person , give God praise.

      Well Marley took me as a young boy and showed me another way to see the world . His words were so truthful and at that time we in the third world countries needed a sort of equilibrium so to speak. Some one to represent .

      I won't get into his pastime the weed ,because I understand too much about how this world works, and that a huge topic.

      You are welcome anytime and your comments a greatly appreciated. I love the Bear the Horse and the Dolphin and I await more. You are good at it. But I understand that the children are more important.

      Blessings teaches.

      I like when you say "you can't do it all, you only have two hands", we try to carry all the burden by ourselves and only end up losing it all. I am not a fan of Marley, but this song he sings has a lot of truth to it (and I like the rythm & guitar). Thanks for sharing. Voted interesting and awesome.

      My dear brethren billy, give thanks and praises. Thanks you for such kind and positive words coming my way . I greaely appreciation this.

      Isn't it quite amazing how some could so easily know exactly what it takes for them to be exactly what they need to be . Not Want !

      It's what we have been trained to focus on. Now it's difficult letting go.

      "I quite proud we did" And God is great , there is got to be something to hold on to .

      Bless my brethren, and all the very same to you.

      Thanks Katrine as it will always be with me, the very same words I said to "my brethren billy" I love the way your writing goes and I ask the Most High to continue his blessing on your way .

      Sincere thanks.

      Thanks you very much Charles . A great and positive words , seems as if I forgot to put your part in the poem. greatly appreciated!

      Someone once said why are things the way they are instead of the way they are supposed to be. I was a boy then and as I saw it then, I see it now .

      They are! And because we are the ones who have the answer in our hands to create necessary change and by very simple methods , like the ones you say.

      Give thanks and bless Charles.

      Speaking the truth from the planet Earth; Sky, you are right on my friend, a truth so clear, so obvious, one has to wonder why it isn't seen by more. I applaud you! Peace be with you today and always!

      Noone can ever have it all. Often, the more we have less we appreciate it. A person may not have a lot in terms of possessions, or friends, but may still be rich inside, in terms of their personality and character, which counts much more than any material stuff can ever give.

      If people would stop wanting everything, we could soon put the greed-mongers out of business and they would have less money to finance their imperial wars with.

      We could close down the sweatshops by cutting-back on our spending.

      We clutter our lives with needless "stuff." And I've already cleared-out half the stuff I own and I'm getting rid of more---it's best to travel light, and that's especially true of life.

      And the bigger and more expensive the item, the more it owns us; not the other way around.

      Excellent words and Bob Marley would be proud!

      Another powerful lesson Sky;again your message to all is so clear and precise.

      We cannot change our world but at least we can do our bit in getting a message out there and this is with you are doing Sky in your own unique style.

      Up up and away for this one again my friend and here's to many more from you.

      Take care and have a wonderful day.

      Thanks brethren bless.

      That the issue survival is so healthy and in the right direction for all , because we will concentrate on that which we "Need" not wasting precious time and energy on the want which is all Fantasy.

      Have you ever see a man alive that has so far not taken care of his human need?

      Simple the "Need" the necessity, the "Want" the Fantasy. Sane the stress and the unnecessary harassment. Go with the need.

      SEE THE NEED TO SHARE. We create our own demons, when we falsify the need, ask people what they really need and you will literally see what I am saying.

      Bless rasta!

      Them want everything thing they see on TV. I have a fridge that I am not using now. I use to think that a fridge is needed for survival but now I see that I just wanted one because it is customary.
