I Dare To Defy Fact - Poem by Simon Lawson
We fell in love too early it seemed,
The odds were against us.
The world; cruel and mean,
Just as we found each other,
And yet all we had to do was wait.
The splitting of our paths,
Was something we could anticipate.
Now I have to conjure,
The thought in my mind,
The horrible prospect,
Of someone else you will find.
But these fears are not founded,
on our love's reality.
We must keep our worries grounded,
and as such our love is free.
Facts torment us like paper cuts to the lungs,
They attempt to strangle a little bird,
Keep her song unsung.
But escape probability we have in every way,
And maybe if we're lucky,
This love can live to see another day.
