What I Need

What I Need

What I need
and
What I want.
What I have
and
What I will
Uselessly desire.
What I am
and
What I was.
What will
Take me
To the goal
and
What will
Torture
My soul.
It seems
It would be
Easy to choose
The need
Over the desire,
But that is a battle
I often lose.

– Susatya Dayson.
