A Random Thought

We will never get what
we deserve
from the world we live in

We will never get what
we dream
from the mind we think in

We will never get what
we love
from the heart we feel in

We will never get what
we need
from the body we walk in

Until there is 
nothing that we want

We will never 
get what we deserve
