Do You Know What Your Fighting For

what may look like rejection, truly is not,
it's where lack of communication tries to steal loves spot,
with vague responses and less openness, it depletes loves share,
which therefore leaves the other person with more room not to care,
loves actions speak loud, that is a given,
but without the words of loves sharing, how can we understand the hearts mission,
to gain closeness in areas where our hearts meant to speak,
we will not grow in love if we remain silent, and just sit in our seat,
a smile and a wave are gestures in kindness,
but it takes trust and faith for love to speak up and find us,
fears ugly head hides in the back,
no face to put with a name, nothing personally intact,
an attempt to rise above fear with a courage to love,
speaks volumnes in value rather than cautious withdraw,
when this cautious attitude fills up a room,
it leaves less room to grow, it's stagnant to move,
your attempts to love and share are not in vain,
it's the lack of disconnect, the emotions in chains,
God did not intend for us to treat each other in this way,
intimidations and assumptions keep the heart at bay,
the weight of this anchor keeps the heart robotically conformed,
separating hearts, how do you expect to know more?,
know your peoples, hear them more,
now who do you think i stood there for????
