Wishing to Want

She tells him, "This is what you want. Not what you need."

He cries, "You don't understand! I need it now! He has one and i need one too!" 

She shakes her head. "No you don't. You have plenty. You dont need that"

 

Miles away, a sound is heard. Its a child crying

"Please Ma PLEASE..." He coughs and cough from sickness. His mother is in the hut too. She also starts to cry. She wishes she could tell her child he dosent need it. That its just a foolish want of a child. But she can't. So over her rumbling stomach, she sings her child to sleep
