It's Odd How Writing Poems Can Tell The Future....

I remember writing this in high school for our school's literary magazine. I thought it just expressed my feelings at the time. It ended up predicting my future. Just after having a romantic night with the friend (Jake) of the guy I love (Cory), we all ended up never talking to each other again, since Cory found out me and Jake had kissed. How a simple kiss can cause so much destruction I shall never know. (Those names are fictional, of course, to protect the identies of the persons involved.)


The Power of a Four-Letter Word


Love is a powerful four-letter word,
Capable of more than it's meaning.
Love can
Unite enemies,
Bring peace to chaos,
Joy to the depressed,
Life to the oppressed;
Love can make many into one.
The ecstasy of love is powerful.

Yet love can be a powerful four-letter word,
Capable of more than it's meaning.
Love can
Create enemies,
Bring chaos to peace,
Depression to the joyous,
Opression to the living;
Love can make one into many.
The destruction of love is powerful.
