I didn't believe in love.

Maybe mild infatcuation at best.

Maybe It was the adults in my life.

Never being happy with their partners.


Maybe the fact that I was too scared to be another teenage cliche.

After a little while of thinking I realized what the problem was.

I was avoiding the truth.

I was in love with my best friend.


The problem with that;

If anyone knew I was in love with them

my world would turn into a whole new storm.

Bullying and discrimination.


It was constant.

Everywhere I turn

my realationships are being demonized

how could I believe in love?

The author's comments:

I wrote this because a problem I (and many others)are facing is that we get bullied and torn down for who we love. I was almost told not to write a poem about this subject today because my teacher wasn't sure what would happen if I did. I want to change that. I am this way because I am and no one can change that.
