An inspirational piece discussing love and being a positive.
Life is unpredictable
And it can be a heavy one
Beat you up into a pulp
And not even be remotely done
A weight that’s unrelenting
Make you feel you couldn’t bare
Watch the sun go down and rise again
Like it just doesn’t care

Hold on, wait a minute
Just let me catch my breath
So much weight upon my back
I might just break within regret
When I finally take a step
I am feeling the exhaustion
Trauma all around me
But I’ve no time for caution

Pressing through the pain
I have built a tolerance
The bulk of my stress
It seems so prominent
An insect, unrelenting
Sucking out my soul
But I shoo away the pest of thought
Because I am in control

Feeling foolish in my mind
But my heart is thrilled to love
Through abuse and depression
It would still pour out all its blood
So while some think me simple-minded
And others think me mad
Love remains my fascination
And I heed to its command

For it is always kind
And it is always patient
And it is outside of the box
Of everything that’s ancient
A force so unrelenting
Yet gentile in its kiss
And when faced with temptation
It’s choice is to resist

A power beyond fathom
A whisper in the ear
That sets the heart ablaze
To break us out of fear
And I say hallelujah
And I declare amen
For I was once a captive
But will never be again

So while the world holds burden
And sets to place them on your back
And while they reign, destructive
The empire striking back
Hold steady to this love
Hold joy through your afflictions
For evil is the heart of man
Who rule through their religions

Remember, love never fails
Love never meets its end
It rises with the sun
And does not fade when set again
So greet each day with passion
Awaken into grace
And shine upon the world, a love
Forever set ablaze
