I Am Society


When is it too soon to love somebody?
When you're sure you love them,
How can society tell you its too soon?
How can society control your actions?
We are society.
I am society.
And I say, it's not too soon.
I do love you, and whether or not the rest of the world agrees,
I'll never know.
I don't intend to find out.
All I know is that I love you;
You, your past, and your future.
You, as a whole.
Only you.

    Exactly we are society. And each century has a different view of polite society and what is acceptable. Through it all please take care that you treat yourself with the same loving concern that you would have for the object of your love. Great poem! (Report) Reply

    A brilliant determination. I love it.
    Beside society is a vague word and is constantly at discord with itself.
    Well written.curt but pointed.
