I am gallbladder and
the rubber taste of my own tongue -
I am a kidney stone,
a heart murmur
and a half digested ball of dust.

I am, in sum,
every part of me
that I couldn't give away
to help someone else.
I was wondering how I would respond to my own question ("Who are you?") - and I figured that who I am is all the things I havent given away already.

This is beautiful :heart:

I don't think you stop being those things you gave away - you are still there with everyone you gifted with a precious part of yourself.

What about receiving? Do I have to be strong in order to find close friendships desired? 
Do I have to ignore pain and do what is contrary in order to find healing?

I don't understand why it is me who needs to give.. Call me self centered or selfish if you like.. But I am the one who needs something.

I really like the idea behind it! I like the idea that you are whatever you haven't given away. But at the same time, I don't think you're a gallbladder...

By that logic, you are also the things you have recieved in return.
