I Do Not Want What I Have Not Got

I Do Not Want What I Have Not Got

I’m walking through the desert

And I am not frightened although it’s hot

I have all that I requested

And I do not want what I haven’t got

I have learned this from my mother

See how happy she has made me

I will take this road much further

Though I know not where it takes me

I have water for my journey

I have bread and I have wine

No longer will I be hungry

For the bread of life is mine

I saw a navy blue bird

Flying way above the sea

I walked on and I learned later

That this navy blue bird was me

I returned a paler blue bird

And this is the advice they gave me

“You must not try to be too pure

You must fly closer to the sea”

So I’m walking through the desert

And I am not frightened although it’s hot

I have all that I requested

And I do not want what I haven’t got
