Love Poems II

Poem II: Pretend Love

Why is it, that you can’t make yourself happy,
But you still believe, somebody else can,
Even if it’s a lie,
And even if it’s just—for a little while?

Listen to Hawk Nelson—Live Like You’re Loved song

“Who is good, if he knows not who he is? And who knows what he is, if he forgets that things which have been made are perishable, and that it is not possible for one human being to be with another always?”

Spanish Translation

“¿Quién es bueno, si no sabe quién es? ¿Y quién sabe lo que es, si olvida que las cosas que se han hecho—perecerán, y que no es posible que un ser humano esté siempre con otro?”

Quotes by: Epictetus—The Great Stoic philosopher, c. 55-135 AD (Translated by: ElRoy, 2020)
