A Lesson Learned Along The Way - Poem by adam reed

love vs happiness
they aren't the same
but its not one or the other
there is an order to things

ive loved and let that be my only source of happiness
held on to that rope so long my hands are just calluses
love cant be everything
it will be the end of you
first you must be happy alone
in the life God has given you

This is the hardest lesson
I have had to learn
'All in'..a poor investment
Heartbreak..the love fool's return

Your love is not your life
that is a young man's game
love vs. happiness
they arent the same

Poet's Notes about The Poem

the one for you isnt the one you would do anything for and who is your everything. the one for you is someone you can share your life with and be happy with eachother's company. there is a balance between a lover's passion and a strong individual. This is a point in my life where i hit one extreme and dropped off the edge. This is the basis i will use when i strive to be the person i want to be. ive still got a bit of growing up to do. but i will get there. thanks all for listening.
