Unintelligible Susurration

Wants - Poem by Unintelligible Susurration

'People can stop
suffering by not
is what they say

Who are you
to tell me what
not to want?
Who am I
to stop wanting

I am just a little girl
who desires the world
to be in her hands
and have everything
her heart desires

It's so contemptuous
that I am aware of
becoming this way
And just maybe
Might continue to be
Until it's intolerable

But my friends
will always be here
teaching me lessons
about life
and telling me
stories about
the outside world

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This tells of a girl who is accused of being selfish and wanting everyone to attend to HER needs. The girl does not care of what people think of her so she will continue to be that way. Quoth she: her friends will be there for her. These friends are her books. ;)
