Forcefully Not - Poem by Ngendo Karanja

Love is a two way street
and in the middle people meet
but this time round
i'm not coming around.

Some things cannot be forced
they have to be willingly endorsed
and right now i feel no love
i feel no need to have
on such as you to be mine.

I hope you understand
and the pain you can withstand
but some things cannot be forced
so if you love me as you say
then do as i wish and go away
for i don't want to live a lie.

if you hate me i shall not blame
but its better hate than the shame
of knowing that it was all a facade
and i can never love you inany decade.

you cannot force love
same as you cannot force a dove
to land in your arms.
i dont want to bare arms
i don't want to hate
and even with your threats
i cannot change how i feel
so respect me and LEAVE!
