Comments about Austin Alfano
Wanting is a common human feature
We cannot help wanting.
Wanting is shared among various creatures.
Still we can be disappointed and be taunted.
As human beings we want many things.
We want more than we deserve.
We want more than kings.
We wish food to be served.
As for I, it is much less.
All I want is to be loved,
but lately life has been such a mess.
Lately I've been getting shoved.
I do not want much,
but all that I do want is almost forbidden.
If I could have but the slightest touch
all those feeling will be hidden.
As I sit here alone in darkness
I see you laugh in the light.
You’re always filled with kindness
Why are you so happy while me, no might?
If I took it from you I should be stricken with blindness.
I still feel for you,
Even though I hate it every minute.
I could go without food
