Honest living Love alive

Sunlight beams on streets so mean..' As Love reaches out.'

A lonely widow toils unending, till day it fades then shares a morsel with her pet..'

Love aspires... a lust rages, and goals are pursued.' As Love reaches out.'

A man beats his family unmercifully..' A sweet rain falls, and tears flow..

Mists shroud the land, a baker makes dough fires an oven as Love reaches out.'

People plan wars, lies are circulated money is apportioned, deaths are reported..'

Storms batter, economy's teeter politicians smile sweeter. as Love reaches out..'

Women cheat on their partners, inflation is raging..' As Love reaches out..'

Love is patient, Love is kind, it does not envy it does not boast, it is not self-seeking,
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs' Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth, it always protects always trusts, always hopes always perseveres..'

All children, all people..' require true 'Love' in order to grow as individuals to attain
their best potential, why is it the world is a consumerist, indifferent model at best
and at worst a short selling warring divisive entity, and yet we have highly educated people running things, purportedly for the benefit of all, what's missing here.? 

Is it the innocence of true Love..?

    "Love is patient, Love is kind, it does not envy it does not boast, it is not self-seeking, It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs' Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth, it always protects always trusts, always hopes always perseveres.."'Agape love is what we humans should strive for in our life but are more likely to not succeed at attaining..However, if we constantly seek this high level we will be much better human beings..

    Thought provoking. This poem speaks of a love so profound, the kind that can only be inspired by the great Author of life, who loves and reaches out, despite humanity's regression. 1 Cor 13:4 best describes this love. A not so simple piece, leaves the reader thinking deeply. A 7.

    HI, Joe. I enjoyed seeing you post a new one up here. A very reflective poem that asks questions nobody can really answer! It's very sad our world has to be in the condition it is!!

    Hi Joe.. First time visiting your work and I loved this one. A lot of truths that you have so expertly entwined into an excellent poem xx~xx

    Hey Joe, I love how you ended this one. Quite thought provoking as well. I reckon each one of us will come up with a different definition of what love really is. So much to ponder on ;) Hope your week has been great thus far.

    without love we are just at a standstill just waiting... love is anything it takes the best of us on a journey, enjoyed this one ~luv skat~

    The definition of love is most illusive as are all religions and pitiful human reasoning it seems. Your piece is cause for deep thought. Love, daver
