Natural Selection

“Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy.” - Wendell Berry

Don’t tell me where the line is
I-know I Want more
These things I see I need a desire that I can’t ignore
Don’t stand in my way!
I want more!!

You think you’ve got it all here
I know I’ve got more
Through blood sweat and fears I’m better than I was before
I’ve paid my way!
I want more!!

There’s never enough time left
I know I need more
Every second that you speak are moments that I can’t restore
They waste away
I want more!

I’ll take what I can get from you
I am More
Just a step to take me further through this open door
You have no say
I want more!

I’ll fight for my place in life-
This is war
The lives who stand against me lie sprawled across the threshing floor
It will go my way!
I will have more!
