What is love in a young women's eyes? Selling her soul to buy some attention? A bold fist to the eye breathless and to weak to walk away? or silent because she was raped by the only man her mother ever loved?
What is love in a young women's heart when she is broken hearted by the only man she thought would have her kids, and be her everything. Lost, alone, and betrayed. Throwing all her hopes and dreams away.
What is Love in a young women's soul when her innocence is taken away. Never breaking her silence. Just out their selling her soul for drugs and diamond rings. Lost in a cold world that she thought would bring her joy and happiness. Just to find out she has HIV/AIDS and other sexual transmitted diseases.
What is Love?
What is love when your father was never there and you feel like you need to love every man cause your father never loved you, never even cared.
What is Love in a young Women's mind laying on a cold table killing her baby due to an unplanned pregnancy, or scared of what life may bring ahead of time.
What is love in a struggling young mother's thoughts. Living off of welfare cause she cant even get the long gone father to pay child support. A New born baby is all shes got.No friends No family ,deserted from them all. Just her baby, her unconditional love.
What is love?

The author's comments:
There are so many young woman out in this world today who don't know what love is. Some may feel like they are nothing, they may feel so worthless that they will do the most horrible things. Ive witnessed some of these things by seeing young girls selling their body,or being abused. This poem is not just for those females who do such horrible things but it is also for the women who give up when times get hard or who are struggling being a single mother. My mother inspired me to write this poem, she inspires me to write many pieces of writing. What I want women to get from this poem is that we are more than just our looks and we need to think positive and believe that we have something so unique and virtues that no MAN can take from us.
