All I Need is Me

When you're sinking

sitting

thinking

Alone in that dark room

after that boy you liked absolutely broke your heart

After failing that exam again

After realizing that there's a long road ahead with only a few dim lights

You finally see that you're the only one on your side

You see that you need to fight for yourself

because who else is going to?

Who's going to hold your hand

and tell you that everything is going to be alright,

just like you've done for everyone else?

You've become the person that you never had

the person you always needed

but you're failing to see that you still don't have that person yourself.

All you have is yourself. 

All you need is you.

And all I need is me.

This poem is about: 
Me
