Independence knows its place; it sits comfortably in my mind.
Strength has its own presence; it flows confidently around me.
Power colours my body, an aura of authority no one can defy.
Courage speaks out, its voice heard; never afraid to disagree.
But then suddenly…
Independence gets wedged against my brain. I can’t think.
Strength hesitantly peeks over my shoulder. I’m so weak.
Power beats me black and blue. Its motives questioned.
Courage has been silenced. Its voice ignored. I can’t speak.
So what is this…?
Why does Independence refuse to answer me when I call?
And Strength no longer wants to remember my name?
In a matter of seconds Power has forgotten who I am.
And to Courage my life just seems to be a game.
He did this to me…
I pushed Independence away. I chose to lean on him instead.
Strength is now a stranger. His arms around me are all I need.
Power no longer has the control; I succumb to his every wish,
He is now my knight and I silently watch Courage recede.
How did this happen…?
What was I doing that I allowed my dependence to be on him?
Where was I looking while he drained my heart of its strength?
How was I able to lose the power to control my emotions?
I was scared, I had lost all courage but I knew I had to admit,
I had fallen in Love…
(Eeee I wrote a poem about LOVE)
