    I Can't Be My Own Support...

    In most of my friends lives, I'm the rock. I hold together while the world is going to hell. I don't need much attention and am pleased with what little I get. I have always been the first anyone turns too when I'm available, and sometimes even when I'm not (not so much lately...
