Too Personal #poetry #30in30 #make30

unrequited love


I push too hard

For something

I cannot have.


I push too hard,

For something

That belongs

to someone else.


I am a child

Throwing a tantrum

Asking you

To do what I did.


I am a child

Crossing my fingers

Wanting you

To want like I do.


I am a child

Of God.

And still I misbehave.

And still I don’t listen.


I hope

I haven’t lost your friendship,

By pushing you for more.


I hope

For your happiness,

For your laughter,

For truth in your life.
