3 I Refuse

I refuse to give

But you need so much

Always asking for things

That I don't want to give

Asking and asking and needing

Saying I'm selfish and immature for

Wanting to keep myself whole

How do you expect me

To give you a portion

When I already feel

Like I'm missing so much

How can I give

What I don't have
