What Do You Want ? (Poem)

Updated on November 16, 2016

As a child, knowing nobody

But the one that feed’s me

And the people I see around me

There is a need

My mouth have not been trained to speak

My body to communicate

And I Cry!

But instead of answer, I hear-

What do you want?


Growing up, differentiating people

Knowing my true family

Having friends and loved ones

There is a need

I speak with all in my heart

And display all the signs I know

I trouble and disturb everyone

But instead of answer, I hear-

What do you want?


As a grown man, having been schooled

Having insight to the world

Knowledgeable in a skill or career

There is a need

Exploring the possibilities at my disposal

Maximizing my potentials

But instead of answer, I hear-

What do you want?


As a religious man, having been tutored

Knowing much about the God figure

Knowledgeable in his book

There is a need

Performing all the sacramental ordinances

Fulfilling all righteousness

But Instead of answer, I hear

What do you want?


Now I understand, needs must be met

Desires are meant to be fulfilled

Not all needs will be at our call

There must always be a need

But with wants which are broad

Unspoken needs can be fulfilled

While the pressing needs remain for a while

So, what do you want?
