Two poems about my son and the woman he loves from each others perspective.

Poetry

Choices 1

Why should she pick me?
I who have nothing;
Only baggage from past mistakes.
Why should she pick me?

Why should she pick me?
This desperate man;
Who has lost such a lot.
Why should she pick me?

Why should she pick me?
I come with a child;
Whom I love very much.
Why should she pick me?

Why should she pick me?
She who is so beautiful;
And could have whoever she likes.
Why should she pick me?

Why should she pick me?
With nothing to give;
Except all my love
That’s why she picked me!

Choices 2

Why did he pick her?
It brings so much grief;
To those that love him so much.
Why did he pick her?

Why did he pick her?
We’ve given him our all;
Since his last big mistake.
Why did he pick her?

Why did he pick her?
We’ve covered his debts;
With funds we can’t spare.
Why did he pick her?

Why did he pick her?
Who could cause such a rift;
That has happened before.
Why did he pick her?

Why did he pick her?
This beautiful girl;
Who loves only him.
That’s why he picked her!

I have been writing poetry for a few years now and use it as a release for all types of feelings. I do not follow any set rules poetry as I find I cannot get the feeling correct if I use the rules.
