Remember Needs - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Remember needs.
Focus not on familiar pleas of stress.
The ones identified as if invited guests.
Wish them away in mental protest.
Do not prioritize them as accepted.
They come to make their stay effective.

Remember your needs.
Place them on the top of your list,
As promises kept.
Reject those paces with routines met.
Reschedule all disappointments!
And have no regrets.

Don't be like the busiest of bees.
Taking opportunities,
To be stung and return stings!
Remove yourself from this living hell you dwell.
In spun hives you live to seek.
Feeling unrelaxed.
Without a deep breathing to release.
With a fear to do so...
Will eliminate a beating,
You secretly wish increased.

Just relax and live life.
Desiring to be free of grief.
Desire to be free and relieved.

Remove yourself from this living hell you dwell.
In spun hives you live to seek.
Feeling unrelaxed.
Without a deep breathing to release.
With a fear to do so...
Will eliminate a beating,
You secretly wish increased.

Remember needs.
Focus not on familiar pleas of stress.
The ones identified as if invited guests.
Wish them away in mental protest.
Do not prioritize them as accepted.
They come to make their stay effective.

Remember needs.
Relax and live life.
Desiring to be free of grief.
Desire to be free and relieved.
Remember needs.
Your needs.
And see to it that these needs are met.
