I want it its mine - passion over patience contest



Walking past the art shop
A picture she espied
The price was way far too high
I want it, its mine.

Knew her patience was limited
To wait for any time
For this lovely  possession
I want it, its mine

Then she remembered him
An old flame, mega rich
I wonder if I enchant him 
Will he succumb to my wish

I want it, its mine
Kept running  through her mind
As passionate love evoked time
I will have it, will be mine.

So patience over passion
It doesn't have a chance
With people with no emotion
Who leads life a merry dance

    Wonderful piece-- so many truths and comparatives in one. Your title reminds me of when my children were around two-- some of the first words they learnt.. "I want it-- it is mine !!"-- before the 'sharing' stage of childhood development :)
