PAD Challenge Day 28: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “I Want (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write the poem.
I want to want the day at hand
And not for some lost land to pine
I want to want to hold the hand
That reaches to hold onto mine
And I would like, with grateful love
To prove my want with fervent grit
For soon Today will find the trove
Where only thought can treasure it

But godliness with contentment is great gain.
For we brought nothing into the world,
and we can take nothing out of it.
