Crossroad

Stand­ing at the cross­road
The choice ‘tween Need and Want
Des­ti­na­tion is pos­ses­sion
Are you ready for the jaunt?

Should Need be your ver­dict
No ques­tion in your mind
Urgent­ly you nav­i­gate
Resigned to what you find

Want is fraught with ques­tions
Do you know where this will lead?
How impor­tant is it?
Desire decides your speed

Neces­si­ty can dri­ve you
With­out a bit of warn­ing
From one path to the oth­er
Moti­va­tion­al­ly trans­form­ing

Want ramps to des­per­a­tion
Need dimin­ished to desire
Con­nect­ing roads between these two
Deter­mined by the fire

Both ways lead to pos­ses­sion
Attain­ment is the goal
Just be sure the jour­ney
Doesn’t com­pro­mise your soul.
