The Things They Said That I Could Have (a poem)

The things they said that I could have
Enthralled me for a time
The things they said that I could have would
Dominate my mind

The things they said that I could have (gave)
Dopamine galore
The things they said that I could have
I kept on wanting more

The things they said that I could have
I Lusted after, chased
The things they said that I could have
Can feel like such a waste

The things they said that I could have
The gains that I could get
The things they said that I could have
Have left me with regret

With endless opportunities
The thing that’s most ironic
The world is mine for taking
And mostly I don’t want it
