Needing help doesn’t make you weak, in fact quite the opposite. It makes you strong, smart, resourceful, and realistic. Being prideful is a weakness. Asking for help when you know you’re in over your head is STRENGTH. Don’t ever forget that!

Brighter than many ever see.
Through the soul’s own mastery.

and kiss them an apology
for every night I bent them, in prayer,
asking God why my lips and my
thighs and my hair are so big.
why my legs are so short and my voice
so loud. why my hands are so small
and my heart so big.

And if he’s doing nothing, you most certainly shouldn’t do anything. You need someone who goes out of their way to make it obvious that they want you in their life.
