No Such Thing As True Love

No such thing as true love.
Especially here on earth.
Pain is all we know.
We live in a world where
pain is love.
And love is pain.
No love even between family
A love that a mother has
for her child..
Doesn't exist anymore,
If the mother kills her own
blood & flesh.
A father abusing 
his daughter, mentally,
physically or sexually.
That's not love.
A man willing to kill another
Or putting a gun to the head
of his brother.
Or hitting the face of his
own mother.
No love in this world.
Hard to find it if there is.
Rare too.
Friends betraying friends.
Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, 
Transgenders being criticized.
Sometimes by their own 
Not being able to love the
person they want to love...
Only because they're in love
with the same sex.
Hating on themselves because
they're not straight. 
Not being able give true
love to the one. 
No such thing as true love.
We were all made by the
same God but it seems no
one believes that.
Who else would have created 
the world?
Who else would have created
the "big bang"?
A sister not loving her little
Always fighting.
Breaking his nose by banging
his head on a coffee table.
Can't believe she did that.
What was going through her
No true love on earth.
This is Hell.
We are in Hell.
Can't wait till we go home
to Heaven.
This isn't my home.
This isn't where I belong!
What is love?Love is supposed to 
be cherished by the heart & mind.
Not hated on.
So why does love become
hate in a matter of seconds?
