Tough Love or Love is Tough? – Jada Leigh

I refuse to give up on us, as it is well worth the fight

My name is Jada and I am a third year student at The University of York. I am currently studying social work, although I hold a passion for English literature.

Tough Love or Love is Tough?

Jada Leigh


It is inevitable that all relationships tend to blossom at the start.
Then instantaneously things just begin to fall apart.
Accepting the temporary feeling of being abandoned all in the dark.
I have acknowledged that love is not easy and clearly not a walk in the park.
If he expresses that he loves me and I am of significance to his life.
Then may I ask why a plethora of tears have streamed down my face this night.
Recollecting my thoughts and evaluating my emotions, how can this despairing feeling be classified as right?
I hope our relationship is not a façade, although things appear to be coming to light.
I guess it is normal for the spark to sporadically disappear, meaning the relationship may not seem as bright.
It is time for us to put our pride aside, therefore put your shining armor back on and begin to be my knight.
I refuse to give up on us, as it is well worth the fight.
I am a true believer that time is a healer, maybe years on we will experience baby fever.

cannot wait for the day that we feel our blessing start to kick.
Knowing that you’ll be the father of our kid is of pure bliss.

Jada Leigh, York
