No Needs Outweigh, The Needs Of Others

No needs are greater then that of my lovers
Cherished be thy sisters and brothers
No ones needs outweigh the needs of the many
Suffice to say, I've made a plenty

Sound the hymn within my voice
I'm am bound within my choice
To choose the kindred kindly fool
Among the beggars and the cruel

Cruel intentions have no worth
Cast upon the tainted earth
Open hearted as I am
There is hope you'll understand

Mere am I beneath the sky
Listen to the tears I sigh
Rivers flow upon my feet
Merry mead, and so they meet

Like the footprints in the sands
You are welcome, hand in hand
No needs are greater then my brothers
No needs outweigh, the needs of others

the hardships of one person bring shame to all; let us move together from simple humanity to humane-ity...

peace and blessings,

Very nicely penned voice of selfless need.

I struggle with the concept, knowing my needs do count too,
because when I don't fill them, I've less to share with you.
Reviewed by Paul Berube 10/10/2010
Beautifully said, Darryn. If only the majority would think this way. God bless.
