Love is a Hard Thing

Ryah Cote, Special Contributor

Finding the one is like a rough river

Movies and books make it seem so sparking

Like you’ll just lose a glass slipper or two

And find the one to call your Prince Charming


But no: there’re ups and downs all around

Like a rollercoaster with a steep drop–

Love is hard will never be easy and sound.

It might seem like one thing but then go plop


And then be something completely different.

It will mess with your heart (might leave a mark)

When I just want someone magnificent…

Someone who makes sweet remarks about me…


Love tests your character and patience too

I’ll find love, but when will I see that view?
