I Like, I Am, I Have, I Want, I Need

My name is Gracelyn,
I like to sing,
I like to watch movies on a binge,
I like to cook,
I like to climb,
I like to play games.
I like feeling loved,
I like feeling like i don't have to change,
I like feeling like I can be ME.

I am a human being. 
I am a person.
I am a wild card.
I am fun.
I am caring.
I am over-indulgent.
I am over-weight.
I am ME.

I have quirks.
I have imperfections.
I have friends.
I have family.
I have technology.
I have time.
I have the freedom to be ME.

But I want.

I want my other half.
I want a best friend.
I want to be small.
I want to be visible.
I want to be more than someone everyone passes on the street without a second glace.
I want to be ME with someone other than my family.
I want someone to share all of my secrets with.
I want.

I need.

I need my other half.
I need a best friend.
I need to be visible.
I need to be more.
I need to be ME.

I know this poem is more personal than my others, so thanks for reading. :)
