Why Human Want More?
Why human want more
when he's already got so much?
Where would he end up by having so much?
Is this greed or his dream?
Why can't he settle down with one thing?
He's got this and he's got that.
He's got everything but thinks,
there is something he still lacks.
He got what he had expected. But still wants more!
I ask again.. Where would he end up by having so much?
Can't he be satisfied for once in his life?
Can't he hold on,
looks one thing at a time,
and enjoy it,

only limited resources are present on the earth... why cant we humans share it all together and live in peace..
