What you need is not always what you want

Seems almost like yesterday
We were young, dumb, and full of play
I grew up but you just grew away
No sense in begging to stay

Fables you spin, you believe them now
Contradictions reality, only how
Never the same around tear it down
Stop please, just look around

Because those in need, only need you
And what you want, isn’t always true
You may feel, but your feeling is off hue
Sometimes your mind, seems to confuse

Paint a painting pretty as the day
Then finish it up with a touch of gray
Look back to find what you lack
beautiful colors are all now black

Swallow down your wants constantly
Feed that thirst for dishonesty
But one day the mirror will reflect
What was once what you would deflect

Because those in need, only need you
And what you want, isn’t always true
You may think, but victim of those thoughts
Only that smell is inside what rots
