They make fun of me

Because I’m single

They say I only pretend to be free.

I’m shackled and tormented they say

As if being single is such a discomfort

They say it in such a way

As if I will never know happiness in any day

Yes, almost everytime they ask my why

When the question ought to be is, why not?



they say I’ll be lonely, that I’ll grow old alone

so they tell me to find someone, as if the one that

I would love grows on trees


as if like apples

I can just easily take a pick

and put whoever he is in my basket


they make it sound like I should go on shopping

hit the grocery store or the market

and start going through my list


why can’t they understand that I’m fine?

that I prefer it this way?

that I prayed to God about it,

that I am in no hurry,

that settling down would mean difficulty

for both my parents


I stand firm but never am I alone

being single never equates to loneliness

I am the exception to whatever rule

you may have in mind


I refuse their pressure

I know they will never understand

and I don’t need them to

for I know what I want

and I know what makes me happy

Poets bleed from the heart and soul


The single speaks her mind


Dear Reader, I am here to give you a little taste of poetry with some water on the side. When you come on my blog that's all that you will taste is Poetry. Not the type of poetry where it doesn't have a meaning. The type of poetry where you will be inspired, uplifted and you will have a different mindset once you leave this site. You might even come to get a taste of this poetry again. Don't be afraid to let your kids read this blog. My poetry is for and to help the youth. Bring them along with you. You both are scrolling down your phone or on the computer anyway. Let's have fun and get a taste of some poetry. I promise this type of poetry tastes delicious. Grab a plate and a fork and I'll feed you. ENJOY!!!!


Poetry, story and real life.
