Love Or Not - Poem by Miranda Will

When I was younger I was taught to love,
To love anything and everything.
As I get older I have learned that to be a lie.
I had loved animals, people, teachers; everything,
but it was always taken from me at some point or
another by something unknown.

Animals by death or rules.
People by god's will or theirs.
Teachers when I moved grades or schools.
Everything at some point or another.

Now I am afraid to love.
I have loved before, and they were taken away,
like every thing else.
I had boys in my life before, and they were taken away.
One's mom called me the Devil's child to my face.
My mom took another by calling him, that was that.

My whole life has been about love.
Recently I changed that.
I loved a boy and he loved me back,
but that wasn't enough.
I pushed him away.

I was afraid to love again until some one showed me how.
Not every one's the same, and I can always love again.

    I think I am at about the same point in life, as you were when you wrote this. Keep moving on and maybe love will find you when you least expect it. But I know all to well about pushing people away. I lose everything myself only when I give all my heart (Report) Reply
