What We Need

What We Need

Let us ask just what we need
Life can be simple without greed
More questions in this world of hurt
But still we may our views assert

For complications come each day
And often there’s not much to say
A politician gives a speech
We hope they’ve something good to teach

So listen closely, truth shall come
It hides for it’s too much for some
A positive thought can bring so much
Stay open-minded, keep in touch

Then one day all will pass so fast
All this we thought would always last
So let’s seek joy and wisdom heed
We’ll be surprised by what we need
