Everyone is made up of salt and water and pastel colours and stardust
And each of these things has a part to play
We couldn't survive without them.
Each of these elements is fundamental to our existence
They would not be
Without us as hosts.
So I wondered
If it's selfish
To want someone else to become a fundamental part of our existence
And to be of vital importance to theirs.
To have someone depend on you as they do the water and salt and stardust.
I've come to the conclusion that it may be selfish
But it's most definitely worth it.
