I want?

I want
To be wanted
Let me give you something
So you need me
And can’t leave me
But that’s pathetic and stupid.
And not true.
I want
To be wanted
As much as I want
So I can be equal, free…me?

Growing up doing musical theater I always gravitated towards the art world. I've been writing poetry my whole life but didn't know it.

Having a home filled with spirituality and Judaism have given me an outlook on life that wouldn’t have otherwise. My religion has given me strength, knowledge, and wisdom that helps me appreciate the sunshine each day and feel the emotions I put into my writing.
