What is love?
What is love? Is there such thing as love at first sight?
Love can be complicated and it can be broken in one night
Can anybody really define –love?
As if it was as swift as the swooping of a dove

Is it possible to find love without heartbreak?
Without feeling like you have been stabbed with a stake.
Heartbreak can be a temporary thing or it can be a life time full of pain
Love and heartbreak are two things that will make some people go insane

I think love and heartbreak hurts not just in grown-ups but also in a teen
A grown-up going through heartbreak could also be a big dramatic scene
I have experienced both love and heartbreak and I sometimes think to myself
Why deal with pain when you can move on instead of putting yourself on a shelf

It is hard to move on but it helps to find something or someone to help you move on
You may think to yourself that you will never be happy how that the one you love is gone
There are people out there who cares about you all you have to do is look
Just remember that love in real life can be painful and not magical like in a book

You might want to find your knight in shining armor as soon as you can
So you could build a life together but you can’t expect a commitment out of a young man
Your first love will probably not be your last but it will be alright
Love will come and go and it’s your job to stay and show some might

i wrote this from experiance, i was recently engaged and the guy dumped me and i want people to know that everything will work out and you just have to be strong and move on and that everybody will find love, after the guy dumped me i just found people to help me on my feet and sure i still miss him but theres plenty of fish in the sea. i hope people see that im a teen who has also been hurt and that theres always hope and that you dont need a guy or girl to make your life good
