Human Needs

I need food. I need water. I need love. I need father. I have myself and no one else. I'm hungry and cold and tired. The children at school are mean, The teachers are too, My parents are gone, And I love you. You listen and don't hurt. I love you with my heart. I may be hard to take care of But I'll love you with the all of My heart, which slowly beats For it needs some treats Maybe that rotted apple? There's nothing wrong with it. You say it's too soft? No, it can't be. You give me food Good food. I don't know what to do. I eat until I'm full Then I eat until I spew I don't want to go home. I want to stay here. Your face and your heart and your wife so dear. Can I have you? Can you be mine? Like a teddy bear All sweet and fine? I don't want to be cold Or hungry again I want to live here Again and again I love you. I need you. Please stay. I need food. I need water. I need love. I need father.
