Unshaken Love

Our love is so real,
yet,we can`t be together,
Silly tradition...
Families at loggerheads,
how can love be so painful?

Past haunts the present,
but our love is unshaken,
despite parents row,
We`re ready to break this seal
and remain close til death parts...

    This is lovely Arowolo! It's sad but so many couples are separated due to traditions and family. I like how you've concluded - break the seal - that's the only way to move foward. Nice!
