Desire To Be

What do you
Desire to be?
Do you desire
To be higher than me?

Do you desire
To pass me by
So you can acquire
An envious eye?

An envious eye
From that of another
Or us both to fly
So we can be brothers?

Take what you have
And share the wealth
Or do you wanna grab
It all for yourself.

Is your desire
Just to better yourself?
Or to better yourself
So you can help someone else?
