Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer - PoetryChallenge2011

Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer - PoetryChallenge2011

For today's prompt, write a quit doing what you're doing poem. This could be about something you need to quit doing or that someone or something else should quit doing.

"What you Need, What you Want"

What you need is covered,
What you want is not necessary.
Driving you to depths of depression
When the sun is shining in your backyard.
Remove the desire to impress others,
Remove the fear of neglect.
Delve into being who you are,
Now.
Not who you think you should be,
Then.
Again, what you need is covered...
and what you want is not necessary.
