Need gets confused with want
You ask me about it, and I can’t respond
For need changes in time
I can’t say more than I’m inclined
Is love a need?
Would I go begging on my knees?
Die because it was not given to me?
Or walk without it with grace, smiling?
Are dreams really needs?
The hope I’ll find a way to exceed
My own expectations and others?
Or will I never know its discomforts?
The truth is, I can’t answer the question
I can’t figure it out, no matter how many suggestions
All I need is what I have now
The ability to live as long as God allows
The love I see in my mother’s eyes
The boy who’s love I can’t deny
To not be stuck in a pile of grief
Yes, that is all I need
To have friends that wear our necklaces
That accept me and all my recklessness
To learn something from whomever I meet
Yes, this is all I need
