Why do we fall in love?

Man meets woman

Woman meets woman

Man meets Man


Simple love, but is it long lasting Love?


But why do we fall for one another,

experiment with one another,

create a growing passion for one another?

And in the end even hurt one another?


Why do we kill one another,

Pain ourselves over each other?

Why do we lie, and take from another?


Why do we change ourselves for one another?

Go insane for one another,

Create problems with one another,

Hate one another.


Why do we not care about each other,

Why don’t we spread peace, love and positivity to one another,

Why must we force action for change,

Why must we be so stubborn.


But instead we should grow from one another,

Motivate each other,

Learn from one another, from ourselves.

We should support and love each other,

But why can’t we?


Why do we crash and fall and lose ourselves.

Make harsh decisions when we are sad and lonely.

Live life to the fullest when we have loved ones and the will to live.

No one deserves to be alone and deal with life on their own.


But in reality we fear the most when someone is gone.

No longer intertwined with them,

Memories rush in, like a car chase.

Unexpected and confusing.

Not understanding why and how.


We worry so much of what can happen rather than preventing what will happen if things are not under control.

We worry so much rather than living in the moment.

We worry just so much.

This is a very spectacular piece of poetry. It examines many of the baffling, important questions that have puzzled human beings for centuries. I like the and tone and feel of your poem. Its rhythm slides off the tongue like a small taxi off the busy cobbled streets of Milan on a breezy Summer’s day. You provided a provocative, yet demure word choice and it all came together to create a wonderful piece of art.

Dear Angie, I really like your poem. It was well written and shows that you really put work into it.One part that I really liked is where you start saying how we should be helping each other grow. This stood out for me because I agree with you, we should be helping each other. I look forward to reading more stuff from you.

Angie, I raly enjoyed your poem. I think it is very hard to be very introspsective on your life and feelings and publish it for people to read. You put a lot of time and effort and the rhyme scheme is very impressive. Personally I like the realness your poem presents. I think the thought of why we do things for love and why we continue to be hurtful when In reality we are hurting ourselves is truthful. I also like your idea of growing form one another. Great job and keep writing.

Dear Angus,
Logic better ask you to be in his new songs. I love how in your pom you question thyself and one another. Your poem had meaning, one that we can all relate to. Thank you for making us think about the hate and love that we see everyday and make us question why it happens. This poem was beautiful to read!

Hi Angie. I enjoyed your poem, it was a strong poem. Your philosophy with this poem seems to be that you believe in human nature? Do think that all humans are born into this sad lifestyle? I would appreciate a summary of what you are trying to tell your audience .

Angie, I absolutely love your poem. It seems very personal to you. I think it’s awesome that you shared it on youthvoices. I always love reading poetry and I have to say yours is one of my favorites that I’ve read on youthvoices so far! I think it’s interesting you connected love with your emotions. I hope you continue to write poetry. Thanks again for sharing this!

Dear Angie, I am shocked by your poem, “Why I’m Emotional As Hell,” because you made it rhyme so well. I can almost hear Tupac read it in his tone of voice. One part of your poem that stands out for me is where you start question loving each other but we still hurt each other. I think this is powerful because these two things are juxtapositions but you made them go so well together. Another part that I really liked is where you start saying how we should be helping each other grow. This stood out for me because I agree with you, we should be helping each other. Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next, because I’m sure you speak from your heart!
