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.
