Not Love - Poem by oliver phiri

This will just make you feel hurt
…. so much that you’ll hate
This is the time don’t wait
Little sister cant you see….
He doesn’t care about you but he…
This love is dirt…don’t agree the date.
His pretending to be divine
Don’t waste your time
It’s your turn to feel fine…
Can’t you see he wants’ to put you out of line…?
Girl! Don’t get me wrong I don’t want you to be mine…
Don’t be deaf; Hear the inner voice that tells you “not this swine…”
Please visualize…and realize that
All those expensive lodges….
…and cars that he drives you in are just lies
Don’t be blind See straight in its eyes
Its not love.

    Love is a thing that demands more than material things.It can be very nasty if we're after gain and not true love.Youngsters...take note! Mister Phiri...thanks for this for this very important warning! (Report)Reply
