you have them,
i have them.

yours matter.

mine don’t.

im busy –
trying to fulfill your needs.

you’re busy,
ignoring mine.

perhaps unintentionally, but-
when i speak,
you don’t hear mi.

when i cry,
you don’t see.

when it comes to my needs
you don’t seem to care.

when, if ever-
will my needs matter?

when, will you stop being too busy
and care, and see, and hear?

and will it be too late?

for needs, my dear,
my needs
too- cant wait!
