Have you seen Tyler Perry’s Acrimony movie? Surely you must have enjoyed the acting masterclass delivered by Taraji P. Henson and Lyriq Bent?
The movie dig up and left so many questions about love unanswered. What is love? When is being in love taken too far? How much of a sacrifice is too much in love? Is love jealous? There are a plethora of questions.
This write-up is written in form of prose/poem. It is about the lessons I did not learn from Tyler Perry’s acrimony movie. However, this shouldn’t be considered an Acrimony review.
I summarized Tyler Perry’s ‘Acrimony’ movie into a prose/poem. This is my unique take on the movie.
Once again I ask myself
“What is Love?”
Is it selfless
Or is it selfish
Is it unconditional
Or is it a conditional b*tch
Once again I come up short
Lost between the reverie of excitement
And pangs of doubt
If love is selfless
Do I give up my dream to make room for yours
Hence we lose ourselves to work?
If love is selfish
Do I say fc*k your feelings
And chase my dreams earnestly
Even it becomes the elephant in the room
Yet again I ask myself
“What is Love”
Is it devotion?
Is it loyalty?
Is it perseverance?
Is it a fairytale?
Once again I just can’t figure out an answer
Love is a word that has made fools out of wise men
Love is a word that has started and ended wars
Love is a word that has made men out of boys
Love is a word that has made women feel like girls
Love is a word that has turned grasses to graces
Love is a word that has turned riches to nothingness
Love is a word that writers and creatives, both past and present
Have tried to make sense of by penning us different versions of their own events
So I ask myself again
What is Love?
Do we even need it?
Yet again I found no answer
I still don’t have the answers
But the fact is that
Love is a hustle
Wanted by all yet understood by a few
We all love in our own way
I can’t fault yours cause I think Mine is better
But you owe it to me
To make your love for me be the best version of itself
DO NOT OFFER IT AT ALL
DO NOT OFFER IT AT ALL!!!
