What I covet is everything I can’t have.
What I desire is nothing I can have.
What I yearn for is all I don’t need.
Yet still, for the following, I plead.
I want to win the lottery.
I want to know the security.
I want the world in my hands.
I want the feeling of being in command.
I want to know what tomorrow holds.
I want to know what’s in store for me.
I want the foresight to prevent.
I want the ability to make it all happen.
I want to live forever, to be immortal.
I want to experience all there is.
I want the ability of Superman.
I want to know the unknown.
I want everything under my control.
I want a sense of being somebody.
I want everything the world can give.
I want to be able to hold it all.
If I had all I wanted, what more would ensue?
If I had all I wanted, I’d have nothing left to do.
If I had all I wanted, tomorrow would be a pointless day.
Nothing more to be gained, everything there to go astray.
