Ode: On Wanting

One Concept of the important subject, subject to poetic treatment, if one actually lives, takes risks, accepts increasing challenge, then has problems, abrupt against recurring attachment or withdrawal, although one needs to be specific. Two Concept of the counter will, that avoids specific treatment, an instance of the survival instinct grown inward, prevents risks, seeks comfort, hates change, denies problems, abrupt against a fixed idea of the self. Buckle Shoe The human is clever at getting what it wants, not nearly as clever at wanting.
