POEM: I Need You

I Need You
By Aaron Giddens

I try to be the best person I can be
But I fall short so often.
I try to be the least selfish person I can be.
But again I often fall short.
I try not to hurt the ones I love.
But I fall short often.
Am I a bad person?
Do I not try hard enough?
I don't know.
Will they forgive me?
Will I ever stop doing these selfish, hurtful things?
I'm sorry I do these things, and I do want to do better.
Will you help me better myself?
Will you be there for me if I need you?
I know I need to invoke the effort but with you here it gets easier.
Now that you're here, I can get better.
With you here, I have a reason to get better.
With you here, I am complete.
Stay with me now.
I need you.
