Everybody Needs Something

I want something and I really do not know what it is
There’s a need in me that I just can’t see
There is something I need that is what it is
It is hidden down deep within me.

He can see my entire soul
He can see what I need
He will not lead me afoul
I am still yet just a seed.

What I need is Him in my life
Every day and every night
The evil one tries to bring in strife
I’m trying very hard to fight.

I need Him
He created me
His light never dims
Sometimes I just can’t see.

Getting It My Way

Tomorrow is another day,
When I will get to have my way.
I will finally get to see,
The one I need, who helps me.
First Grade
My way is full of needs and wants,
Buried deep, but yet still haunts,
Things that I can’t put a name to,
But rising up, they always do.

I can’t even seem to name,
The ways to play that no-win game,
Again, again, I don’t know how,
It really shouldn’t matter now.

But deep within, the need’s still there,
I need some help, someone to care,
Deep inside, the child still cries,
Afraid the end is when she dies.
