We Do Not Need to Want
by Ryan Bradshaw

We do not need to want;
We only need to need.

We do not need to reap;
We only need to seed.

We do not need to gorge;
We only need to feed.

We do not need to preach;
We only need to lead.

We do not need to change;
We only need to weed.

We do not need to fly;
We just need to be freed.

We do not need to run;
We just need to proceed.

We do not need to win;
We just need to succeed.
