“You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need” – Rolling Stones

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in not getting what I want by any means necessary but rather getting what I need by God’s Means Necessary”)

You can’t see any limits to “I want.”

The world is your oyster, pearls before swine.

Who can live to die by the sword post-haunt?

By any means necessary for “mine?”

I have to see that there are limits here.

I can’t want it all. “You get what you need,”

Rolling Stones sing. The Bible says, “Endear

yours ears to Love, your mouth to speak not greed.”

“Not I speak of want; I speak of content.”

Philippians 4:Eleven – We’ve learned,

by any means necessary, torment

haunts us when we want what we have not earned.

“We want” is “we need”‘s true adversary.

We Love by any means necessary.


  1. Timothy J. Verret

    There’s probably a reason, Dag, why it is your favorite song, right? My favorite song is Barbra Streisand’s PEOPLE and I know the line in that song, “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world,” is the Holy Spirit convicting me on, “yes, Timothy, you NEED people. I know you don’t think you do, but you do!” 😉
