Sunday Sparkpoetry -- Love

Sunday, December 20, 2015

This poem is about love, the very strongest emotion
Either given or received, it's something akin to a potion
It sets your body, your mind, your heart, in motion
and nothing can feel better than love's devotion

The love of a child is something I didn't understand
Until I held her, my joy, in the palm of my hand
Since her birth-day, my heart is her wonderland
This love is fierce, so strong, and incredibly grand

To fall in love just might be the best feeling ever
You try to deny it, to evade, to be clever
But, when it strikes, it is a magnificent endeavor
And your head might say no, but your heart says forever

To compare love to hate is to do love a wrong
One empties your heart, one fills it with song
They are both emotions that make you feel strong
But one is so terrible, and so often so wrong

Prejudice is hate disguised with a name
To hate irrationally will just fan that flame
Bigotry is hate, and brings additonal shame
Get rid of hatred, there is no need to defame

So, try today and for all of the days ahead
To remove the hate and think of love instead
To fill your heart with love, and let it be fed
Starve the hate, and always think with your head

I hope that you all have love in your heart
That others love you when you're apart
Loving with compassion is truly an art
Finding love and keeping it is incredibly smart

You know that love is awesome between any two
It usually makes you happier, broadens your view
If you find the right love, you will rarely be blue
Love today and every day, and be your best you

Spark on!
