Is it Jealousy, Or Is it Me? I Doubt it's Love.

Poetry By: Hanif Tariq Ballard

I thought of this. It is not EXACTLY what I believe, but I want to see what people think about it.

Would everyone stop with trying to get

The "right guy" or "right girl"

I hate hearing about love

I hate hearing about "the one for me"


That's not right

Maybe it's Jealousy in wanting that one

Maybe it's just me

I see "it" all the time

People meeting in high school

Then staying together until they're Old


Though at an Old age

They are in Love

I guess I am Jealous

When I here about people

Being madly in Love

I feel a bit of pain in my chest

Someone tell me if that's normal

I thought that I was supposed to

Feel this pain ONLY when

I see the girl I want...


The girl I wanted to Love

Why did I Want to Love her?

I feel happy for the people who

Are able to love a person

Not the unconditional love of family

The love of a person unrelated to them


It's more envy than happiness for them

I may also feel sad for them

For when the Love doesn't last

I don't WANT to have any interest in love

No matter how intersting it sounds

A word with no real meaning

I laughed at the thought

It sounded stupid to me at first

After 15 years on Earth I saw a lot of Love

I guessed that not everyone is stupid


It was Irrational to me

Who needs it?

All one needs to do is mate

Raise children

Then let them repeat the Process

That's all we really need, right?

Do we need Love?


I doubt it

I bet any man or woman can go through Life

Have children with someone of the opposite sex

Then Die

And not have any regrets

Can you Believe that?


Most likely not

You think that as a Human

Love is needed

I wonder when or if I'll Think as well

That it is normal to Love

Just as before

Like the Red Rose


In many Flags of the wrold

Red shows the Compassion and Passion of a human

This is why I choose to Write in this color
