Falling in Love Poem

Not Settling When It Comes To Love

All my life I told myself that I didn't deserve much, that I should just settle for what life gives me. I soon realized that when it came to true love, one should never settle, because you can't fall in love with someone unless they are perfect in your eyes. Using this logic, I fell in love with the same person who fell in love with me.

Why I Chose You

Published: September 2016

I've always underestimated myself,
Always tried to humble myself,
But when it came to true affection.
Settling was out of the question

I used to settle for the ones in my league,
Continually thinking that my game was weak.
So what if she's just alright?
It's just a girl, am I not right?

But this is love we're talking about,
A force larger than all doubts.
This girl could be my wife.
She could reflect my entire life.

And so when I saw the perfect one,
I thought, it's her or none.
Might as well give it a shot.
For once I'll be the man I'm not.

I chose her because she was the best.
I fell in love with her; God knows the rest.
Convincing myself I'm more than a mess,
God gave me perfection and nothing less.

We first met at a public meet. She slipped and fell down, hurting her ankle badly. I was lucky enough to help her. I then did a first aid and took her to the doctor. We became the best of friends. Soon our friendship turned into love. I previously had dated someone, but it was her first time. It was not so difficult to convince her that I love her. We are very close now and waiting for our education to be completed before getting married.

When I was reading in class, she entered the room. That was the first time I felt her entering my heart. She was so charming. I told her that she was exquisite. There was a sweet smile on her lips. Eventually we fell in love.
