Want v Need

Along with everyone else

I want to be truly craved

Not just simply needed

Being only requisite

That's one pleasant thing.

Being someone's exclusive sight

That's surely the goal, isn't it?

People who only need me

Treat me plainly, like a governess

That makes me feel like garbage, see?

People who really desire me

Treat me like expensive jewelry

That makes me feel like royalty

I am an indispensible commodity

Its time people start treating me

Like a genuine superiority

'...GENUINE SUPERIORITY...' THIS LINE HIT ME LIKE A TON OF BRICKS. IT KIND OF SUMMED UP WHAT THE WHOLE WORK IS ABOUT AND 'ORDINARY PEOPLE' JUST CAN'T DO IT. ONLY GOD CAN BE OUR ENCOURAGER 24/7. THE ONLY ONE THAT MAKES ME 'ALWAYS' FEEL LIKE 'ROYALTY' IS JESUS AND MAYBE...JUST MAYBE...THAT'S BECAUSE ONE DAY I REALIZED SOMETHING...I REALIZED THAT ONLY WHEN I RECOGNIZED MY 'INSIGNIFICANCE' BEFORE GOD...COULD I THEN RECOGNIZE MY 'SIGNIFICANCE' TO GOD. ITS A PARADOX; WHEN WE ARE NOTHING BEFORE GOD...IT IS THEN THAT WE BECOME EVERYTHING TO GOD. THERE IS A SONG BY A GROUP CALLED 'COMMISSIONED' ENTITLED 'ORDINARY JUST WON'T DO'. MARK, THIS IS AN EXCELLENT THOUGHT PROVOKER...ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING AND BLESSINGS.
LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS.

I don't know how to tell you, Bono, but I have found PRECISELY what I've been looking for! Been here all along, but foolishness clouded my view.
