The biggest contradiction in me,
I could have easily covered
All aspects of my life,
Yes, so I claim,
If only I had
A love of a man.
Everything would align at once
When romance would be obtained.
How am I, such a magnificent woman,
Diminish myself to be worth a love of a person
Who is not me?
It doesn’t sit well with where I stand
Or want to be.
On the other hand, I don’t care.
I want to be a Princess sometimes, not a Queen.
To know sweet secrets that he and I share
In a blossoming garden at I can endlessly stare
Without a care in the world and the world does not scare.
What do I care to be right
If being straight feels so great?
I want to know that I am chosen,
To feel awake.
Some people want fame
And I just want love from one man.
I feel I have to be ashamed
And I don’t want to be restrained,
I long to be contained
A love sustained.

I would love to hear this read… the rhyme pattern and the power in which the words would be uttered, would be great…
Oh thank you again! I will do as you ask. In the following days. I actually thought about it as well because I love this poem. I did it on another piece, Farewell, and I love the outcome so I wanted to read another one
you are most welcome! which one have you read. I look forward to hearing you.
It’s called “Farewell”. I wrote it before leaving my home country. I will let you know once I will do this one
The wrangling and yearning of desires, powerful reflection.
Thank you 😊🙏🏼
Very welcome 🙂
Wonderful piece. Love the flow.💕
You are worth the love of a man.
But! You’re a whole lot more than that.
Thank you so much, it means a lot to hear 😊😊🙏🏼
