Poems From The Porch

My Needs, Your Needs, Our Needs

When I get up in the morning,

I think about what I want to do,

and then I do it.

My thoughts are all about me.

Even if I am doing something for someone else,

it is because I want to feel secure, esteemed, and in control.

How would my life be different if I loved my neighbor

as if they were myself?

Well for starters,

I would actually think about them.

I would consider their wants and needs

outside of how these desires relate to me.

I would prioritize their wishes

as being as important as my own.

The only way to find out what they want and need

is for me to ask.

How might I make your day better?
