Poetry About Life
Everyone in life experiences ups and downs,
Every life knows love and lost.
A babe is enthralled by the nurturing and envelopment of a mother's womb,
And then forced to vacate the comfort of its solitude.
Lovers part and return,
If love is real,
Only to find new love,
In an old lover's arms.
An old woman still blushes at the gaze of the man
whose love rests in her bosom,
And should he supercede her in death,
The memory of their love will live on.
The reality is: You can show a man how to survive,
But you can't make him do it.
You can encourage people to seek God,
But you can't make people find God,
People have to find God on their own.
The reality is: Everyone has emotional needs and sexual desires.
Whether active or suppressed.
When active, it can be healthy or addictive,
But when suppressed,
It can cause men in robes to rape little boys.
The reality is: We all make mistakes,
In life you live and learn.
The reality is: Everyone needs to love and be loved.
Love involves risks, being vulnerable, letting go of inhibitions.
There's no one to impress,
God already knows all about us,
And most people don't care.
Be true to yourself,
The heart never lies,
The flesh gets weak,
The mind gets restless,
The spirit is always searching, longing,
For something outside of itself,
To satisfy itself.
The reality is: Some people live all their lives,
And never find what it is.
