To Be Needed

To be needed
To be pushed and pulled
And tugged upon
To give your life
Your breath
You last drop of energy
To someone else
To lose yourself
In the sympathy
In the empathy
The pity really
Relentless and unforgiving
Because she can’t do it alone
Because he depends on you
Because you said you would
Because it’s my responsibility
To be responsible
To be afraid
Of letting someone down
Of being less than what they were
When I needed them
To be needed so much
You forget what you need
Forget who you are
Forget you made the choice
To be needed
In the first place
