They say mankind has a deep hunger.
A hole in its heart
That cannot be filled.

For even when we have it all,
It never lasts.
And we want more.

Even when the earth is bare
And there is nothing left to give from this world,
It won’t be enough.

And we’ll continue searching.
Trying to satisfy this endless hunger.
This curse of desire.

It sounds so convincing, I had to think about it for a second. I think it's true, so true, if you look at that side of the human race. But think about the Givers, for a moment, instead of the Takers?

Thanks for the piece-- it's really good.
