A Harsh Word

“You do not want a friend.
You want a therapist.

You do not want a spouse.
You want a servant.

You do not want sons or daughters.
You want trophies and medals.

You do not want church.
You want entertainment.

You do not know how to love.
Yet you want to be loved.

You do not want love.
You want sex.

You do not want poetry.
You want philosophy.

You do not want philosophy.
You want poetry.

You do not want to try.
Yet you demand the world.

You do not want to listen.
You do not hear.

You do not want to look.
You do not see.”
