C-pain

Wants

We all want things out of life

A new car

A big house

Lots of money

 

One want most overlooked

Was important

More than cars

And houses

And money

 

Something everyone wants

But also something WE need

It can save lives

But can also end them

Ruin them

Or fix the worst life

 

When you look for that satisfaction

in their eyes

In their smile

The way they walk

The way they talk

 

That feeling

Four letters

But worth millions

That feeling

LOVE

    hello , i like how you started with writing about materialistic things then brought in the idea of love ... '' worth millions '' interesting how you brought in the word millions to describe love , money is nothing in comparision to love but i like the relation between the two
