Do I Really Have To? - Poem by fasica berhane

Do I really have to?

Do I have to act good
To make you love me?
Do I have to pretend am perfect
To make you fall for me?
Or hide every part of me
For you not to judge me
Or hate me?
Well, love me or hate me
I'll be care free
I'll be just me
I am not going to act around
What wouldn't represent me
Am not going to try something foolish
That can't be me
It is not because I hate you
Not because I love me
It is just because I am me
and Nothing or nobody
even love could never change me.

Topic(s) of this poem: love

    Love is a spiritual experience that builds bridges that unite and abhors deceit that create barriers that divide. Being 'me' is being truthful to oneself which creates conducive environment for the voyage of pure bliss that is love. A well articulated piece of poetry nicely penned with conviction. Thanks for sharing Fasica. Please read my poem THE OBSESSIVE AGONY OF LUST. (Report) Reply
