Poetry Project 2017: Day 187

We all want to be loved,
so they say.

Is that really true?
Maybe we all want fulfillment
or compassion
or recognition

What do you want?
A name?
A place in history?

What do less fortunate people want?
Their lives and the lives of their loved ones?

I guess your fortune
determines your wants.

Does it determine your gratitude too?
