I was looking for love…

I was looking for love at the age of 12.

Everybody was out having fun, skipping class. 

I was in the front of the class learning and and try and trying to retain my math.

I was looking for love at the age of 13. 

Everyone had boyfriends, looking cute and holding hands. 

Mean while my innocence had already been took. 

I was looking for love at the age of 14. 

There you are having fun, thinking you know everything. 

I was at church repenting and getting me a purity ring. 

I was looking for love at the age of 15. 

Everyone had friends and played sports, they would win. 

I was in my room throwing shit and screaming fuck everything.

I was looking for love at the age of 16.

Everyone was going to parties and glowing up. 

I was still trying to explain why I want to date girls who look like guys instead. 

I was looking for love at age 17. 

Everyone was doing their own thing. 

I was watching my back not know when my crazy ex would come back. 

I was looking for love at 18 . 

Everyone was about graduate, had a career plan and everything. 

I was pregnant and disappointed, cause I was still missing something. 

I was loving for love at 19. 

Everyone was getting jobs and moving out, doing big things. 

I was crying at night because my baby was hungry and I needed some sleep. 

I was looking for love 20. 

I was looking for love at 21.

I was looking for love at 22.

One day I finally looked in the mirror. 

I had been looking for me. 

I am love and love is me.
