Something We All Crave

Slam Poetry

I am not talking about candy

Or chocolate

Or food at all

I am talking about

Love; from ourselves, family, friends, even strangers.

Confidence; to walk in our own skin and feel free and alive, to be ourselves.

Acceptance; of our sexuality, appearance, personalities, mind and heart.

Freedom; for ourselves and from other people, even from reality.

Respect; from family and friends. Even from people we don’t know.

We all crave them every now and then, but sometimes those cravings can disappear, especially when we realize that we don’t need these cravings.

What do you crave? lust? desire? loyalty? love? food?
