love

and i’m tired
of being asked
if i’ve fallen in love
like i’m
incomplete
unless i can say
yes

we who pride ourselves
on how far
we have come
how liberated we are
really little sheep
have you looked
at yourselves lately
at your sad insecurities
at your need to be like
everyone else

i don’t need
to fall in love
to be happy
you see
i made myself a promise
years ago
that every day
i would love myself
