For Sunday Scribblings - Demands


I made myself what I am
You cannot help but adore
Terms and conditions are mine
I want all you have, and more

I demand your loyalty
Your affection, your respect
In return for your kindness
…Nothing …What did you expect?

Give me your love; I’ll cheat you
Give me your money; it’s spent
Give me all your possessions
To squander is my intent

I only want it to say
‘Been there, done that, seen it all’
Then I just want the next thing
You live to answer my call

Only one thing left I want
I want it so much, I’d die
Without this thing I desire
…The answer to ‘Who am I?’

Once I have self-awareness
I’ll have everything, for sure
But when I own this knowledge
I won’t want it anymore
