Why do so many
not have enough
for their most
basic needs

While others 
than they
can ever spend

They can’t
take it with them
in the end

They can’t

Premium Member The Wonder of Existence
Feelings of elation
  Mingle with desperation

Doubts and fears
  Supplanted by cheers

Prejudice and discrimination
  Yield to acceptance and toleration

Laughter and mirth
  Follow difficult births

Ambition and greed
  Succumb to basic needs 

Defeat and despair
  Give way to hope and prayer

Beloved Pet
My best friend ever
Comes from a place
Some wonderful kingdom
That's a fine state of grace
Where love is essential
But easily given
Acceptance-not judgement
True alliance-not driven
Love in big doses
And basic needs met
That's all my best friend
Has asked of me yet
I give this quite gladly
Would give so much more
To have this sweet being
Always here to adore...

Love Comes
Infants bond from basic needs to mother’s scent,
understanding nothing of the love that’s spent.
Toddlers cry whenever they don’t get their ways,
children pout against the pane on rainy days.

Teens within a circle that fulfills their needs,
grow to see the roses hid behind the weeds.
Those who give because they love is always learnt,
gifts of time, a simple rhyme or candles burnt.

Devil Zones

Troughout the world we have devil zones
Places lacking basic needs father figure unseen 
Idol hands devils workshop life is cheap to keep
The cycle of depravation governments creation

Rich countries have no excuse this horrible abuse 
Addiction rife devil smiles on these few square miles
Sending police is not the answer life is much more tender
Governments govern so they say time to take this pain away

I am Nothing
I leave the place 
Where I first learn 
To laugh and to cry 
hungered and be tired 
To love and be love 
And to dream their dream 
Because the time ask for it 
Not to gain what I dream 
But to give what their dreams. 
I know my family need me 
To support them financially 
But I failed to gave what I keep 
By sending what their basic needs 
Because until now I'm just like my family 
Suffering from poverty.

Closer than Close
We must talk,
until there are no more words.
We must explain,
until not everything is understood.
We must be honest,
until nothing is hiden.
We must listen,
until everything has been said.
We must question, 
so that we know why.
We must be fair,
so that everyone's basic needs are met.
If there is no communication,
there will be no bond.
If there is no bond,
there will be no friendship.

Equal Opportunity Thief
You might say that Uncle Sam is equally greedy
High taxes for middle class,the rich,the needy
Doesn't matter partisan lines,there's no reprieve
Situation will get worse,I do believe
Taxes on our basic needs,forget the fluff!
As a U.S. citizen I've had enough
Still,it seems complaining doesn't do much good
He would tax us making whoopee if he could!

Nothing Is Forever
Nothing is forever,
Life turns ‘round without fail.
There will always be change,
Sometimes it will derail.

Maybe you’ll have to move
Pack up so many clothes
And all the other stuff
Quite a houseful, God knows!

We tend to own so much
And think “we need it NOW”
But then we need to purge
And trim it down somehow.

With old age comes wisdom,
We know our basic needs…
Money, clothes and shelter,
And hopefully good knees!

Sell their bodies and their souls
They've lost all control

Their eyes are glazed with a film of desperation
Agitation, preoccupation

Basic needs no longer shelter or food
Only one avenue is pursued

Begging, stealing, money is air
How it's obtained, they don't care

Health and hygiene gone with the rest
Nothing matters they're obsessed

There's no love to give family or friends
All their love goes to the ends

Everlast - Ends

Dreams of the Coming Night
Damn, if the days don't seem a little brighter 
        I think that the muse is something which casts its rays carefully
Moonlight shines bright 
its rays dance along the sidewalk 
Need a new lover!
The time we spend on trivialities 
   eats away on our basic needs 
  which are love and peace 
A pair of darting eyes glowing in the evening 
   is what I really need now 
Don't mind if I stumble a bit on the path to true joy 
    which is JUST AROUND THE CORNER...

No hope No life
No life can exist without hope

As hope is the candle that lights this globe

Give all those around you love and care

Let peace spread here and there

Smile to your life and never be sad

Forget about the problems you once had

Never be jealous and never hate others

Try to love your life even if it bothers

Open your heart to all those around you

Love them and help them even if they do not do

No life can exist without love, care and hope

As they are basic needs in that globe
