#Because I Love You

I do this for you

Not because I want to, 

just for you.

I've left everyone behind,

I've turned on my friends,

said goodbye to my family.

I did all of this for you,

and what did you do for me?

I gave you everything I had,

my love, my passion,

even my PIN number.

And what did you give me in return?

Just a bunch of scars,

a mental disorder,

and a bunch of stuff from Amazon that I can't return.

So why did I do it,

people may ask.

Because I loved him, 

and because he told me

that he loved me.

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
