There are two kinds of people in life: The ones you need to fight for, and the ones you should just let go.


When I grow up-

I want to find the kind of love

that my friends will be jealous of.

Not that generic brand,

store-bought love.

The good stuff,

like designer jeans.

The rare stuff,

like a precious gem.

You know the kind of bling

you find on a ring?

By the way-
I want a ring.

I don’t want any of that

“Let’s sleep together,


then forget each other’s names,” love.

None of that

“He played me


and made me part of his games,” love.

I want a true love.

Not a


beaten,


and



broken,



and




blue




love.

I don’t just want infatuation.

I want

passion,

loyalty,

affection,

adoration.

I want the kind of love

that will be passed


d


o


w


n

for generations.
To our children and grandchildren.

I want our kids

to know how much

they are loved,
even before their birth.

Love come down from above,

like heaven


here on Earth.

Every time I see ya

I hear angels singing


“Hallelujah!”

-But I don’t just want to

hear love.

I want to see love.
like a cinema in 3D love.

kickin’ back in my E-Z chair,
watchin my favorite flick with you.

I want an easy love,

as simple as hand-in-glove.
Not a complicated love, like

x=y+3^4-8,927×?31
“Uh, can you repeat that?”

Look, if we’re gonna do math equation love

how about something I can understand-


like 1+1=2.

I think I just got an A+ on me and you.

A+?

Sweet!

I want a sweet love.

I’ll never forget the day we’ve yet to meet, love.

I imagine it’ll go something like this:

“Hi, my name’s Analisia.

I know you don’t know me…

But I know you’re the one
I’ve been waiting for
my whole life.”

So, in English class we learned about slam poetry (if you don't know what it is look it up on Youtube) and this is my slam.
