wanting

December 3, 2008

the more i want, the more i take.
i have the basics in life,
food,
shelter,
family and friends,
but i feel the need to get more then my fair share;
not because i need it,
not because i really truly want it,
just because everyone else has what i want; and i envy them.
i am not a bad person,
i try to give back when i can,
but still i am wanting more and more
while others are left to die.
what kind of person am i, a normal child,
to get everything i ask for?
what good have i done to deserve this privilege?
and yet i lie alone at night,
feeling guilty and alone,
just wanting so much to help those who don't have what i have,
not because i need to,
not because someone told me to,
just because i want to.
and i'm hopeing that i get this one wish,because i want it with all my heart

The author's comments:
i read this book and it really helped me appreciate what i have in life, while others have nothing. i am so glad that i have these things in life, but i will always try to help the less fortunate, because they deserve to be helped.
