Feigning Freedom

You cannot have something

And not have it

Simultaneously.

You cannot feign feelings

To keep someone around.

You cannot hide the truth

To hold on to a lie.

You cannot love someone

and make them cry.

Love is not freedom

It is sacrifice

It is imprisonment

Of one’s selfishness.

It is unconditional kindness

It is wanting someone

Simply for their presence.

Love is not broken promises

Adorned with passionate kisses.

Love is not a flame

Engulfed in a waterfall.

Love is either all in

Or not at all.

So how can you say you love me

But all you want is to be free?FreshPaint-0-2016.06.11-01.11.24.png

I am an aspiring investigative journalist with a single dream: to save the world. It may seem impossible, but I believe knowledge promotes tolerance, and tolerance breeds empathy, kindness, and compassion. Love is the cure for Earth's cancer.
