Need Is A Purpose

 

 

NEED IS A
PURPOSE

 

Need is a
purpose

whose
thirst is never slaked

whose
drive

is always
onwards.

 

When met

it fails
to recognize

its own
fulfilment;

it yields

 

to
further craving,

swallows
its own desire,

breathes
hope

(in
striding forward)

 

and fear

of
failing, falling short

of our
unknown goal
