I'm Just Not Ready

I’m sorry I cant take care of someone else
I’m busy trying to tend to myself
To try and help another lost soul
would be foolish and selfish, and leave us both cold.
I’m not in a place where I can help you
because I need someone else to come help me too
How can I help if I am the helpless
I’m sorry, but its true, and yes I feel selfish. 
But don't we all need to be selfish at least once?
for ourselves that is, it doesn't take much
just the awareness to know you need help too
and the first person to help, has to be you.
