Frienemy

Why do I love those with no love for me?

Over and over I give my heart away

only to have it broken and returned,

ill used and and betrayed.

Jesus said, “love your enemies,

show kindness to those who hate you.”

Who are my enemies?

I can’t say that I hate anyone.

If an enemy is one who hates me,

then I have several hundred of them.

I don’t understand why they do,

when I’ve invested so much in them.

I only ever wanted their approval,

but they gave rude remarks and hateful stares.

Why do I love those with no love for me?

I suppose I’ll never know the answer.
