Why I Gave Up on Love

I gave up on love years back,

That time when mama gave up on me,

Handed me to the nurses soon after birth,

Drugged to an orphanage at nine months old,

Left to the mercies of well-wishers,

Fed on powder and whole life milk,

Adopted severally and sent back to streets,

Denied for lack of a loving parent


I gave up on love years later,

In my youthful days when I was full of life,

Motivated by the success of my peers,

Ready for an education that never crossed my path,

Following motivational links and visualizing the future

Filling out scholarship and bursary forms

Hoping that life could give me a U turn,

Denied for lack of a loving donor


I gave up on love sometime back,

When I was old enough to make a few choices,

Embrace the right and face consequences of the wrong

Worked up relationships

And then I left when some turned out to be sour,

Then I forgot I was in charge of my life,

Left my whole life to a destiny that never was,

Denied for the lack of a loving acquaintance


I gave up on love,

Coz love gave up on me.
