Poem: Seekers


Like an Orphan, I sought for love

With a mother and a father giving less attention,

I measured love as attention and affection

Pulling the gents my way with every poke

Accepting their words as kind gestures

Hoping that from friends we could be lovers

Bending to please, whatever it would cost me

To fulfill my fantasies of how I could be loved

Like a movie scene, I could play the rescued

But as dumb as the words, I became a victim over and over

Till it dawned on me that I was created by a lover

A lover so supreme, he took my pain

Loving me even before I saw the world

Passing on a torch that I too could love myself

Much more than anyone could
