My Peace…

Entry Eight: August 19th, 2021


Avoiding overload

I remove society

As I ponder in my peace


I sit in the darkness

Organizing my thoughts

Formulating a generic plan

Preparing for the things I can accomplish


I set in my peace

Resetting as my breathes become hectic

I channel in all the negativity

Reformulate it's intentions


What I take in

Doesn't determine

What I put out


I cry out for the souls

Who has been without

For the ones who offend me

Cause LOVE, it's not their fault

Yes, maybe it's their choice


Yet

I choose LOVE

I choose to LOVE so deeply

My soul touches you every time

The thoughts of me come about


LOVE is a powerful spell

That spills when you tip it too far

Suffocating you from the thrills it brought before

Treat Love as a Herb not a Drug


Allow LOVE to heal you

Not string you about

We've all heard of ABUSE

When you hold LOVE up too high

LOVE turns to LUST

Then it tears you apart


Open up your heart

Allow LOVE to FILL you

RESTART your heart


If your heart is BURIED in regrets

It's your job to perform AMENDS

And UPROOT the reasons

So you can HARVEST

The LOVE that was planted in your heart

In return

Sharing your LOVE

Will plant SEEDS in others

That's how we GROW

That's how LOVE GROWS


Love never ENDS

It was my Mother's LOVE

That SPROUTED

When I searched within

ENCODED in my DNA

I AM the LOVE

She often displayed


It took 13 years for Her LOVE to SPROUT

And with EDUCATION AND SUPPORT

I've REHARVESTED and IMPROVED

MY LOVE in many ways

I've planted SEEDS in lives everywhere I stood

MY LOVE is WILD

GROWING ROOTS in the most uncertain places

Because RESPECT is ENCODED in my DNA...


Yet

I AM NOT PERFECT

It takes RESEARCH and AMENDS

To LOVE EFFECTIVELY….


I LOVE YOU BECAUSE I CAN LOVE MYSELF

Flaws and All….
