National Poetry Day_Poem 2_Love is not a Weed

N

‘Love is not a weed,

It cannot grow where it please’

 

Openly assessing the other

Eyes wide open

It is not a deal conducted blindly.

 

Ancestry, health, beauty,

Class, financial status, education,

Sex, age, profession, culture, race,

– taking into account

it is a deliberate selection

to gather what it may

love is not a net cast wildly

 

I learnt today that there are rules

 

‘Love is not a weed,

It cannot grow where it please’

They mock my love for you
