I Want What I Want To Possess - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I want what I want.
And with a selfishness,
That feels deserving.

I've committed my time,
To others with a giving.
And with a sacrifice to leave behind,
Collected precious treasures...
I had found to claim I believed were mine.

I want what I want.
And without a guilt to feel.
My wishes and desires to me are real.

And I have done my very best,
To be there for others...
Without sleep or rest for myself to get.

I want what I want.
And if this means my confession upsets.
I have already experienced having regrets.

I want what I want.
And with a doing done.
No matter who I offend with my requests.
I want what I want to possess.
