From the beginning we have been trained.
Taught to think a certain way.
To take,
To abuse,
Until nothing is left.
We take and take and take,
But rarely give.
We are thieves.
Stealing from our home,
Until nothing is left.
There is no purpose.

Need and want,
Have become,
One and the same.
We constantly need,
More.

But once the novelty is gone,
Nothing can replace it,
But more,
More and more.
We are drowning,
In an ocean of uncontrollable want.
We choose to ignore.
To simply look away.
To give into our addiction.
The addiction of more,
Until one day there may not be more.
