Year 2: Day 84 – Thou Shalt Not Want

I mean, it’s not like you won’t,
but you shouldn’t, y’know?

Whatever blind eye you have turned
on yourself,
don’t open at the neighbor’s house.

When has anybody else appreciated
the things you wanted
when they got it?

When have you ever even noticed
that somebody wanted
the things you got?

I don’t say things lightly, kid,
but c’mon,
you know what it does to you-

I never said you wouldn’t,
but you know what wanting does
to you.
