A little raven haired girl sat alone
Throwing stones
Repeating a mantra
Amare est delere et amari estΒ deleriΒ 
With tears down her face fighting a tantrum
I pondered how a girl so young
Could speak in a different tounge
her body seemed so pale
And extremely frail
Yet she gave off an aura of a warrior
An aura that contradicted her exterior
She said her mantra like a soldier
Would each time becoming bolder
It was then that I realised what it was
And what it meant because
It was something I learnt as a child
To stop me from loving so wild
amare est delere et amari est deleri
To love is to destroy and to be loved is to be destroyed
And I knew I must help this child and fill it's obvious void.
Something I wrote about how I feel . The mantra may not be the same If you type it in Latin however if you type it's meaning " to love is to destroy and to be loved is to be destroyed " it does come up like this . I hope you like it and can relate or not .
