How To Love

Inspired by the video for the song by Lil Wayne.

All she wanted was
The simplest of gifts
So precious, so fragile
Yet so elusive
With burdens on her shoulders
Too heavy now to lift
How did something free
Become so expensive?
And the people that she trusted,
The people she would see
As models of her future,
Guardians of destiny,
Were on a darkened path,
Sinister and cold
To even ask for love
Seem so foreign and so bold
And when your mother's mirror
Holds shadows of abuse
How do you find Wisdom?
How do you find Truth?
It hovers out of reach
Like the stars that hide above
When all your life
You've searched for
How to trust and
How to love.

  1. When I read your poem, I remember the music "Queen Of Hollywood" of The Corrs... I just don't know why...
