“Underneath Dreams”

Somewhere in the heart of it,

Dreams are born of wants.

Desire exceeds need,

Consumption conditioned response.

Playing at charity,

Beguiled by altruism.

Building towers of self-esteem,

With laser-like precision.

Wants, and needs, and lustful means,

Monopolize the Ego.

Who can kid the baser Id,

And spot life’s hidden placebos?

Admission of impending urge,

Gives strength to sublimation.

The path to peace, it seems indeed,

Requires material liberation.
