What Did I Do Wrong? - Poem by Ibrahim Enitan Eniola Olubiyi

What did I do wrong?
How and Where did I go wrong?
What words of my brought this on me?
What leave left I unturned?
What part of me was not well formed?

Everything I am,
Everything I have,
All that I could muster,
All that I could fathom,
Everything, put I in it
Just to make it all work
Yet, it would not work
What did I do wrong?

How do you love a woman?
What exactly is love?
How does one express love?
When does one express love?
Where does one show love?
is love meant to hurt?
Where did I go wrong?

Arising and falling,
In dangers and peril,
My Partner, I have always known
Yet, I believe him not when it come
To her
Thought I could change her,
Thought the leopard could change her skin
Pushed myself to the brink of insanity
Just to give her the best
But a broken heart I get in return
What did I do wrong?

How long will you mourn?
How long will you engage in self pity?
Awake! Arise! !
Move forward oh! My feeble soul!
The end is not near!
This period will pass
You will love again
What did I do wrong?
