long road

if I can be

half of what

you want me to be

then I won’t be me

the one you see

.

but

.

if I can free

that half of me

the one you see

then half of you

will be free

.

long road..

  6. This is an interesting poem with clever wording 😀

    Why do people strive so hard to change others, when really we ought to change only ourselves, when and IF we want to change…or with some very gentle prompting…haha

  7. Being in relationship itself is very complicated.. And u have depicted that very nicely in this post 🙂 So anyone wants to get complicated get on to one …
