These Matter

What matters most?

I need nourishing food to eat.
Clear water to drink.
Clean air to breathe.

I need company.
Companionship.
A flock.

I need caring.
I need to care.

Peace within me.
And peace around me.

Freedom.
Choice.
Dignity.

Flights of fancy.
And wings to carry me away.
And bring me back.

Home.

These matter.
