This is Me

By: Harlow



shouldn’t be feeling this. 
It’s not normal
but look at her. 

The way her nose crinkles
when she smiles. 
The way her eyes turn a dark hazel 
when she’s thinking. 
The way she speaks,
eloquent and opinionated. 

 I 
can’t love her. 
I don’t even know 
what love is!

But
whatever love is,
I must be
feeling something
pretty damn close 
And it’s her fault. 

I’m okay with that.

A little poem about my journey to self-discovery and self-acceptance when it comes to my sexuality


Peer Review

"I’m okay with that" is a very simple line that somehow bears so much strength and power in this poem's context.


It didn't necessarily change anything about my own perceptions (as I have always believed love is limitless), but the whole piece is really an insightful poem that prompts one to reflect on the unpredictability of human life and emotions.
