Young Love

Young Love

A Poem by Tate Morgan






Tate and Taylor

To those of you who've loved and lost

the pain always seems like the end

You find the other has moved on

asking you to just be their friend

 

Young love seems so unfair to us

society makes us believe

That we are each due a great love,

easier to dream, than achieve

 

It may seem like your love is gone

everything you learned was a lie

That all your dreams became just that

leaving you the question of why

 

These moments carve your character

through these laments that seem so hard

Comes a better defined person

one thats wiser, yet a bit scarred

 

Pains that accompany young love

both those endured and those imposed

Teach the respect for each other

that should already be supposed

 

These pains will help guide you through your life

making a better man of you

Then carve the person you become

into one you can respect too

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
I watch my son and his first love with great intent. I can only hope he has learned from my mistakes. While as a parent I would love to spare my child from the pain that often comes from first love, I realize that would be wrong. To watch them together is to see myself as a boy and remember my first love. I have watched as this played out. Now off to college what seemed so inevitable has happened. As they have broken up. I am sure the resulting heart ache has been quite wrenching. I can only hope I am there as a well of knowledge to refresh them as they go through this .

Many thanks from me to you
Life is a journey where upon lessons are learned with every bump in the road...
With every stumble to the ground...in fact with every tear we shed.
I'm sure your son will be just fine...besides he still has you to turn to in times of doubt.
Great work.

Thank you gracey Life has a way of honing us to a sharp edge .
Great poem Tate. Hard lessons, but necessary in order to learn what's really important in life. I feel like I, unfortunately, didn't really do much introspective thinking until very late in life. Had I the courage to do so sooner, life might have turned out differently.
