About the Poem
I wrote this poem after I left my husband. It made me realize how truly unhappy I was in our marriage. For years, I knew things weren't as they should've been. But this was the first time I ever put it into words. I had a few doubts after we separated. Was this the right thing to do? Would I regret this someday? This poem made me realize how trapped I felt when I was with him and how free I felt without him.

If love is supposed to set you free
Why do I feel chained?
If love is full of sunshine,
Why do I see rain?
If love makes the world go round
Why am I standing still?
If love is a walk in the clouds
Why am I trudging uphill?
If love is about enjoying today
Why do I look to tomorrow?
If love is the greatest joy
Why do I feel sorrow?
