Have you seen Tyler Perry’s Acrimony movie? Surely you must have enjoyed the acting masterclass delivered by Taraji P. Henson and Lyriq Bent?

There are so many blogs already with very interesting perspectives into the argument of who is right and who is wrong in this crazed love story of Robert and Melinda. Truth is, Robert and Melinda both had faults thanks to the movie plot but is their situation that different from our everyday love stories? Anyways, I won’t be boring you with this arguments, instead I am content with going the unpopular route of and question what love really means. The issue of love is bigger than Robert and Melinda but thanks to Tyler Perry, the acrimony movie as well as the lessons and morals it aimed to pass, I can finally ask my questions about love.

The movie dug 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? Does the Acrimony ending mean there are rarely happily ever after in love? There are a plethora of questions. Yet none of them were answered.

DISCLAIMER: Even I do not have the answer, I am hoping at the end of this, you can also enlighten me on what love should really mean.

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 or its morals. However, this shouldn’t be considered an Acrimony review but a review of what exactly does love mean.

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?

*Sighs*

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

Or

DO NOT OFFER IT AT ALL

DO NOT OFFER IT AT ALL!!!

 

I am aware even I didn’t answer the questions. Truth is love is too complicated a topic to be answered in a single article.

You can share your view of what you believe love is or should be like.
