I Require Nothing Of You - Poem by Noemi Lee

I require nothing of you.
Not because I love you,
but because
It is easier to require much of myself
than to realize that
you cannot
or will not
meet my needs.

I require nothing of you
Not because you are my dependable rock
but because I know
that if I did
I would be left standing on the street corner
All night.

I once heard someone say:
You are not responsible for my tomorrows.

Are you lucky?
or am I?
