People, Pawns And Priorities

This poetry is about a quick and concise description of the three types of people we have.

Some are good; some try so hard to be.
Just like the evening tries to hold light as much as the morning but never succeeds.

Some want all, and some take all,
Some get better even though they don't deserve it,
Some wish they could get even a little speck of it, but it never comes.

Always the givers, never the receivers,
Wants nothing more than to be reciprocated,
But since they're pawns...
It never dawns.

Get what they want always,
Always ranks higher in the thought of at least one person.
They reciprocate or not, they are still who they are... Priorities.

Some give, Some take,
Some hurt, some love,
Just wanting to make someone feel important.
