Where Do I Stand Now? - Poem by Aobakwe Makole

I have loved
and I have lost.
I had a crush
and I got crushed.
Where do I stand now?

Now, I don't know what to expect
in love,
must I carry on lowing
or should I throw in the towel
Where do I stand now?

I feel like giving in
knowing that the is some one
Out there for me
should I wait or not
where do I stand now?

I feel like shes miles away
or she just around me
trying to get me attention,
but I am so focused
on the wrong person,
like Cupid shot me with an arrow
and she's the first face I saw
Where do I stand now?

I fell for the pretty face
not the personality,
character,
spirit,
attitude,
Where do I stand now?

When I began to dig inside
I began to realize
that she wasn't the one
I'm alone once more.
A street dog searching for food,
me searching for love
Everday Friday the we th
Where do I stand now?

I found a the queen
reshuffled my cards
and ended up with a queen
I didn't bet for
Now Im broken
Torn
empty
bankrupt
where do I stand now?
