WaNtS aNd nEeDs

What we want is - 
Not always what we need
But what we need is not
Always what we want
Which is more so important

Do they actually go hand in hand
Like if if we did not recognise bad
How would we know what is good
Like one believes god or the devil 
Like having a plus without a minus

Separating one from the other?
Seems a bit of a head doa, at times
Decisions yeah all these decisions
But is it possible to really separate
Your wants from your needs?

When you want something so bad
That you are willing to do anything
But what if you need something
You then have to stop and think
About what it is that comes first

Your wants or is it your needs?






Probably makes no sense this idea had for some time though Im going back on
old writes updating a bit with this more of a manifesto  but also trying not to ryhme
unlike others or though with some others like fate and coruiosity suck to a diffrent pattern
same as with you ill be and others currently working on mother earth some of the last few writes
ive taken or drawn from a big epic one i wrote that I put on here before chrismas but scapped
at time as I thought to much content so my last few wrirs are drawn from this
ut if i had not of come on soup in first place then probably would not have had the insperation to go back on old writes 
And of course write anything new WRITTEN BY MY SELF DAVIDSCOTT MARCH 2013
OR THOUGH IDEA DISCUSTED WITH FRIEN BACK IN JAN FEB 2008,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,wants and needs
