    It's Just A 'want'.

    I crave being needed. I want to help people; it makes me feel so good to be called on for help. Of course I have a family of my own now and there's not a lot of time with them I'm willing to trade, but I've always wanted to be needed. I feel my purpose in life is to help people...

    Useful to Useless

    Getting up, getting dressed, walking out after breafast, speeding down the crackled street, I search for a friend to meet. She calls me out, gives me a hug, and cries into my shoulder. I hold her close, cheer her up, make her laugh about her tear-filled make-up. Now, she's fine...

    Make It Alright

    I need somebody to need me. I want to be able to make them better and let them know that it's going to be okay. I want to be the one who can fix a bad day with a smile, or can mend a broken heart with a hug. I want to be the one who will make you laugh when you're feeling down...

    Pisces Giver

    I am undoubtably a giver.  I need a purpose to exist.  I thrive on being supportive to those in need.  I give and regenerate love inside of myself so very quickly that I feel a need to give away in abundance.  Do you need a hug?  Do you need...

    Let Me

    I need to be needed like some people need to be the center of attention. I don't want to be the center of attention I always try to slip in under the radar. All I have EVER wanted is to be wanted and needed. To be the only person who they want to listen when they need to vent...
