About the Poem

Love in my life is like wind, it blows my heart and soul around. You win some and you lose some. I wrote this poem when I was only 16, after I broke up with my first true love - who I will always love in my own funny way.

Katie,your poem is simple,short but very skilly written. I liked every bit of it!
This is so me. So much like what I'm feeling right now. Sometimes, I think of why it's too hard for me to find the love of my life, why do I always have to end up broken-hearted? Why do I have to endure this pain?

Losing Yet Again

Love in my life is like sand,
I give it care and attention,
Then a strong gust of wind sifts it through my hand,
I lose yet again
