Bamboozled No More: Willing, Wanting, Working


 

Are you willing? Do you want? Are you willing to work for what you want?
Do you want, but are you unwilling to work for what you want?
Do you want and are you willing to want the want of another, because birthing your own wants
requires too much work?
Are you unwilling to want? Are you still willing to want to work for what you want?
Are you willing to steal the wants of another because you want to want something?
Are you willing to unwant that which you only want because others want it too?
And are you willing to work the work to unwant what you want others to want?
How much you are willing to work for what you want and wanting to work to keep it?
When will you be willing to work for what you want? Would you be willing to work to not
want? Are you willing to unwant that want and want the want you want?
When will you be ready to be willing to want the want and not just any want?
When will you be ready to unwant a want for the want?
Are you willing and working to want what you want?
