Before anything else

Before food

Before water

Before shelter

I need love. 


My family drives me crazy

But I know that they love me

Even when I got a tattoo

I knew they were upset

But they were still proud of me

For making a big decision 

On my own. 


And then there's Kyel

He's so stubborn

But he's always supportive

He wants me to succeed

Even though we have different ideas

We're a perfect example

Of opposites attracting. 


All I need 

Is someone to love

And someone to love me back

And I definitely have that. 


I have my friends

My significant other

My parents

My cat

My sorority sisters

I have love.
