I Cannot Change

I cannot change who I am simply to please you, my love
For the time would come when you would see
That you love me, not for who I am
But for whom you have made me to be.

What a mournful day that will be
When you finally come to see
That you don't love the real me!

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    If people are pretending just to please their mate it will only lead to disaster. Though that day be mournful it might be necessary for moving on to someone who really matters. Great writing!

    Thanks, Timothy! I do believe in making adjustments to make things work, but you're right...once you are no longer true to who you are...it's time to move on! Thanks for the visit! :)

    This is very wise. Many recreate themselves without realizing they are already Loveable and the lose themselves in the process.

    So true, Richard. I've often wished I were less emotion and intense. I often get wounded, but...trying to become callous and develop a tough exterior has not been something I've mastered yet. Thanks for the post.

    People do change people, like husband and wife they take from each other. It's natural. Love feeds on love! Nice poem Eileen! xoxox
