Gotta Want It

If you have to want it enough to fight for it, then first you have to want it.

Wanting it may seem easy for most, but moving beyond desire to get clear — detachment — well, that moves you away from the wanting.

It may well be enough to tell most that they have to work for it, fight for it, but for those of us who have detached, well, the first thing we have to learn is that wanting it is a good thing.

Of course, that means you have to affirm our desires, evn the ones you find queer.

And the reason we learned detachment in the first place is because the world denies and dismisses even the possibility of those desires being both achievable & holy.

If you want us to fight for it, we first have to want it, to believe that wanting it is a good thing.

And that’s not simple.
