Three Hungry Stomachs
Three hungry stomachs drive us
And we strive to fill these bellies
One is the hunger for knowledge.
As we learn new things everyday,
this food for thought illumines us
and lights up paths so we can see
and exercise freedom of thoughts
that will guide us to our goals.
The second is the appetite to be known
So others can recognize our actions
It’s a never ending voracious competition
Of feeding off approvals and endorsements
A bondage of dependent perceptions, and
an addiction to collect irrelevant trophies.
Then is the hunger to remain unknown
Although we want to know others
We don't create new knowledge
As we are riddled with fear of acting,
Content with acts imposed
And codependent on wisdom of others
