"Love"


LOVE, most beautiful natural instinct life has given us,
LOVE, mother nature provides the many loves for basic survival,
LOVE, the greatest demand and motivation within humans,
LOVE, strongest mental force from these instinctive wants.

LOVE, the eternal flame of hope human beings wish for,
LOVE, the greatest physical feeling enjoyed by humans,
LOVE, compassion of affections for the good of mankind,
LOVE, romance of humans rewarded by the thirst of sexual love.

LOVE, in humans charts our course in our daily lives,
LOVE, in man holds his integrity as a human being,
LOVE, the pendulum in the philosophy of sanity,
LOVE, positive traits within humans, to befriend others in need.

LOVE, the innocent children pure in mind as their faces,
LOVE, inspiration of man to bring forth new life in humanity,
LOVE, sharing to give, to be honest, to have faith, to see God,
LOVE, others feelings, to understand, to be trusted, to be thankful.

LOVE, the force of humanities, to live together in peace,
LOVE, throughout the World keeps Nations at peace,
LOVE, motivations of human beings for continuous existence,
LOVE, hope for continual survival of "Worldly Co-existence."

    Nothing is left out from human quality profile, it seems. In scientific jargon, is this the expression of selfish gene, I wonder. Yet, a wonderful poem! (Report) Reply

    If we could keep the pendulum tilted towards love even just a little bit many conflicts would be resolved. Great poem. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Love is the basis of all we do. It is the cause as well as the goal of life, the reason for being social with fellow- inhabitants and for our quest for co-existence. With the flame of love in the heart, each one of us contributes to make this world more humane, noble and worth living. (Report) Reply
