Give And Want - Poem by Ifeyinwa Ezenyimulu

We all want this and that
That and this, and that
And more, more and some more

In our endless want and need
Unending want of selfish need
Is no want to give
Nor the need to give

Selflessness is perfection
The divine simplicity
That we seek and yearn

Seek what you can give
Want and give
Give and want
Need, give, receive

Topic(s) of this poem: love and friendship, love and life
