The Importance of Love
Kara, Age 14, London, ON

Never really understood
The importance
Until things got bad

Until I realized
All the people
In the world
that I loved
loved me because
they had to,
Not because
They wanted to

They didn't love me
They loved the thought of me
The illusion
Not reality

Then I found out
The truth
Love doesn't always
Have to be one-sided

By the luck of the draw
Or by the grace of God

I found people
That loved me
For me
And not for who
They wished I could be

The one small word
that complicates
or simplifies
