All



All.
Will never be enough for one to give.
To the many wanting more.
Hoping to receive,
What is wished to want.
To believe a need.
Fed to feed.
Then leave.
Unsatisfied.
Seldom to be thankful.
Or expressed the doing,
Has left them pleased.

Better it would be,
A giving of less to tease of more...
Later to come.
Than to say all has been done.
This to do and have heard said,
Seems for anyone unaccepted.
To appreciate that of what they get.
With it done to soon forget,
What was once thought had been wanted.
Leaving them pleased their needs were met!
Since the all of anything to want received,
Could never be the all of everything wished.
