What We Do Not Need

We don’t need words to save a soul,
all we need is concern and compassion.
We don’t need words to get a goal…
all we need is persistence and passion.

We don’t need actions to sink a soul,
all we need is nonchalance and negligence.
We don’t need actions to ground a goal,
all we need is ineptitude and indifference.

We don’t need to shout to shine,
all we need is inspiration and ignition.
We don’t need fame to feel fine,
all we need is affiliation and affection.

We don’t need a lot of stress to survive,
all we need is constant effective effort.
We don’t need a throne to thrive…
all we need is sustainable support.
