Happily Never After By Leke Obasan

Do I have to wound my mortal soul

For the love that I thought I knew,

Appears there is always a layer to be unraveled

When one thinks a heart has been totally won over,

Trusts and smiles built over the decades,

Bashed due to actions and inaction,

Capabilities of external bodies is a weakness of the subjects involved,

How deeply can one hurt over trivial things?

As termed by people viewing the scenario,

But so mountainous to the ones involved,

When very tall mountains literally appears

And can not be scaled,

Many things ride on passion and emotion,

I believe love does too,

What would I rather invest my energy

on work?

Or love?
