I wrote this poem about my boyfriend who I love dearly. He means the world and more to me, but it seriously hurt when other people expressed the way they felt about the love that we share. You see, he's black and I'm white and my parents do not approve of our relationship at all. They look down on it so the support that I get is very little. I wanted to reassure him that I didn't care what other people thought of us and that no matter what I would always love him for him, not because of his color, so I expressed my feelings through this poem...

More Ways Than One
When I look into your eyes
I see the beauty that lies...
Deep within your heart

You dream what I dream
You feel what I feel
Baby, don't listen when they say
That what we have isn't real

The sound of your voice
The sight of your face
when I'm with you
There's no better place

You say that I'm an angel
But you gave me my wings
You treat me like a princess
And the best of all things

You've given me love
And all of my pride
You've showered your beauty
On this little heart of mine

So many nights
I've cried over you
Trying to find the wrong in this
But what I'm feeling is true

Never once
Did I think this would happen to me
That a piece of heaven would fall
And set my heart free

Free of the dark
Free of the lies
Free of the loneliness
Free of the lies

Sometimes it's hard
To say what's on my mind
And breaking through the hesitance
That I'm leaving behind

I wish that we could be together
just how we want
Just me and you
No hiding no lies
But for now this will have to do

I pray for the blessings of the Lord that
we can stay strong
And that this hopeless devotion
could seem right for the poor souls who
feel that it's wrong

When it's cold and dark I can feel the
the warmth of the sun
Baby please believe me when I say
"I love you forever
In more ways than one"

    I am so sorry that people think yhay of you and you should not worry about how people feel about your relationship the only thing that counts in your relationship is you and your boyfriend feelings and nobody else's so they shouldn't speak on someone else relationship people need to stay in their on business including your parents the should be the last people to judge you because they are your parents they should be by your side oone hundred percent.

    I really like Amanda's poem. I have been in sorta the same sitution for years. My mom doesnt want me to be with a black man, because she disapproves of it and the way the world is. But even though i dont know Amanda, if ses happy with him, then thats all that matters. he could be pink, or blue. shes happy with him then let her be. And like my Aunts always told me "I'd rather see you happy with a good black man then with a bad white man. "

    Whoa. I would cry if I was born with operable tear ducts. That was beautiful. I hope my girl can think of me as most of this poem said. I do call her an Angel, and I try to have her feel like I'm a great guy. My history just doesn't back it up. Great job!
