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
or...
what?

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

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

I guess your fortune
determines your wants.

Does it determine your gratitude too?
