    my strength attracts the weak
    my resolve draws the meek
    maybe they're looking for
    an energy leak
    but in the end I'm just
    surrounded by freaks
    I'm not gonna fix you
    be your rock
    build you up and
    give you courage
    I won't be all that
    you can't be
    save you and
    sacrifice me
    I refuse to give you
    what I worked so hard to get
    I'm not your personal savior
    I'm not your best friend
    you want someone to
    do the work for you
    to cling on to
    well that's too bad
    I want someone as
    strong as I am
    who perseveres through fear
    who rises to try again
    I want a woman who
    has plummeted to the depths of her soul
    who knows who she is
    and isn't afraid to grow old
    A woman who can
    look at life and deal with what is
    who keeps it on the real
    who doesn't pretend
    can you meet me
    can you match me
    can you pass the bravery test
    I will not settle for less
    If you have no strength
    go on home
    there are no compromises
    I'd rather be alone

    Hey now, ^5 sis. Sometimes when someone is in need, it is fine, even loving to give them a hand. But if they can never give one in return, then there lies a problem. This was a bullseye poet....love it.
