it seems the balance
between wants and needs
has much to do with happiness
needs are part of daily life
water and air
things without which
human beings would not survive
but then comes the gray zone
the in between
is love a want
or a need?
is belonging something we must have
or just a comfort for a lonely heart
Perhaps these are choices one must make
and the answers differ among us
when needs overwhelm wants
when survival is paramount to desire
when dreams are lost to getting by
there is little room left
