The price we pay for happiness is our growing desire. We are happy with what we already have but our urge for more takes it away.
We all have needs
but these needs turn to misleads
when we assume wants as needs
the quality of life recedes.
It’s important to be forward-looking and think ahead
it’s important to do what’s committed and said
but losing the butter to earn the bread
makes us lose the smiles and tears we shed.
What we have now doesn’t satisfy
we just want ‘a little more’ to gratify
and then we’re in a stage to pacify
the anger in us and incapability to stand by.
Life is water and we have enough
we just want to hold it in good stuff
well hiding the pot too is tough
but we showcase expensive crystal and easily bluff.
To hide and turn around was apparently effortless
our pots aren’t porcelain they are a little hopeless
we are never proud of that we possess
we are always worried about what the other assess.
To quench our thirst maybe life
but status, position, money are a bigger strife
because that’s what is understood outside and is rife
to be content looks like on shoulders a huge knife.
