Finally Loving


Some think
That when you fall in love
You are giving yourself to someone else.
Some think
That when you fall in love
You are entering a trap,
A trap that will end up killing you.
Some think
That when you are in love
You give up your life
And let your feelings fly.
Some think
That when you say the powerful words
You are surrendering your strength
To the weakness.
But the truth
Is that when you fall in love
You are being brave,
You are finally flying
Like the most beautiful bird,
You are flying higher than a plane.
When you are in love
You are starting to discover yourself.
When you are in love
You are finally giving up loneliness,
You are deciding to be loved,
You are deciding who you want to be.
And some think
That some people do not fall in love,
But the truth is
That we were created to experience new feelings
And every one is destined to love
Because there is always a twin soul.
The only problem
Is that some decide
Not to search for that soul,
And therefore get lost in time.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There was a person (I do not remember the name) in this website that wrote a poem about using music as an inspiration. I decided to try that method by listening to the song 'Terrified' by Katharin McPhee, and this is what I cam up with :)
