What is important? 
What is significant? 
What's consequential? 
What makes a difference? 

Must I do more to matter? 
Do I have to perform to be better? 
Should I be uncomfortable as I am? 
In my own skin? 

I have been trained to lack
To want more than I have
I'm confused about the way
I am made

I want more, then I want more
Then I want, yes, even more
I will never have enough
There's a gap in me for love
