The Constant Need


The constant need…
Is ruling over our thoughts and actions.

The constant need…
We are dazzled by shiny attractions.

The constant need to run...to chase,
We have no end in sight.

The constant need to prepare...to be ready,
We burn, on both-ends, our candle bright.

The constant need to get more...to be more,
We forget to take care, losing our mind.

The constant need to compare...to judge others,
We lose empathy, turning mentally blind.

The constant need…
Can it be controlled, can we stop?

The constant need…
Will we survive, will be come out on top?

The constant need to move forward...to get ahead,
We are okay taking short-cuts, seeing rules bend.

The constant need to be the smartest...the best,
We are convinced that means are justified by the end.

The constant need to improve...to become perfect,
We walk on the thin edge of a knife.

The constant need to fight...to always win,
We forget there is more to life.

The constant need…
We simply roll the dice.

The constant need…
Makes us pay a heavy price.
