What You Need

That which is a must
You can’t live without
A thing or a person
Required to live and breathe
Your list is different to mine
Mine differs from another
We each have our world
But if all should disappear
And we had to start again
How would those items change?
The essentials become clearer
With a more dire situation
Your makeup, shoes and chocolate
My phone, coffee and car
Cannot begin to compete
With the need for fresh water
Safe food and clean air
Think before you buy
Think before you use
Think before you become attached
Do these harm the essentials to life?
