A LITTLE


I give a little
You ask a lot
I give a little
You want all I got
I give a little
You want my best
I give a little
You request the rest
I give a little
You demand of me more
I give a little
You keep me empty and poor
I give a little
You say I lack all that you need
I give you all that I have
But it still falls short of your greed.
'closing thought'
Some people will never have all they desire
For their greed shall consume them like flames of a fire
