Human Need

Each of us entirely unique
Fundamentally we are the same
Need, desire, comfort, that we seek
Race that is this funny human game
Food and shelter first without a doubt
Toil and then some warmth for when we rest
Build a home to keep the danger out
Love to soothe that ache within our breast
Friends who give a pat upon the back
Pride in all the milestones we’ve achieved
Strive to be the best that we can be
Hierarchy of the human need
Actualise the self creatively
Maslow’s thoughts enshrined in poetry
