I asked for it.
I wanted it so desperately.
Oh, how I thought I needed it.
I pathetically yearned for it,
making stupid reasons as to why it should be mine.
It would be everything I needed and more.
It would calm me in times of anxiety.
It would raise my spirits in times of sorrow.
It would accompany me in times of loneliness.
I had given everything for it.
Then I realized
it only brought upon me more stress
it only brought upon me more sorrow
it only brought upon me more loneliness.
I asked for it,
I received it.
I realized,
I never wanted it.
Another poem I made from my book of sayings. I thought this captures the thought process of some people. They say they NEED something and then they go to great lengths to get what they NEEDED and then just toss it aside and never use it.
This is 100% mine. It derived from one of my quotes which was originally "I asked for this, I received this, I realized...I never wanted this."

I feel this way about responsibility. When I was a kid, I always wanted to grow up. Now I'm in the process of doing so, I just want to stay small. It's always so simple to say you 'need' something, but do you, really? Good job!
