LOVE

LOVE Love can be defined as a feeling of deep affection for someone or a great interest in something enjoyable and in much simpler word, passion. For passion is a strong feeling, emotion or liking. Yet, there is also difference in love and passion. Passion is intense feeling and love is tender feeling, more deep and lasts longer and expresses itself in action, the feeling is reflected to the deeds. Love comes in different types and the first type would be the love of parents for children, storge. Storge could be followed by agape, the love of mankind, if the child is taught to love others. Then there is philia, the love of friends and equals; loving siblings, cousins, best friends and friends. Sometimes eros, the erotic, passionate love comes early, known as romantic love between two people. Love can bring happiness and joy, feeling content or satisfied for being “loved” and for giving love. Love can cause sorrow and pain for love hurts. Broken heart actually hurts, deeply feeling the loss. Love can affect a person tremendously for love cannot be shown by words alone, it has to be expressed in action, wherein, the loving feeling is reflected to the deeds, to feel and act lovingly. Love is a feeling that is enacted, feeling wedded to the deed and unfortunately, love is expressed in words with no action, no warmth at all from a cold soul, just like an obligation or with cruelty. So this meaning of love is being passed on from generation to generation, the wrong conception. Love can change lives for the better when it is meaningfully expressed in words and loving deeds. 3/1/22 G - Give Me A New Poem - Any Form Poetry Constance La France Theme: #1 - Love

Sara, thank you so much. Love is so simple; yet we make it so complicated with expectations, with jealousy, insecurities and so on.... Thanks, again. Blessings to you.

Yes, since I was a child I questioned the lack of love from my own mother, her coldness to me. I was fortunate to feel loved and given unconditional love by her sister, who raised me. I see a lot of dysfunctional relationships that affects everybody in the family and maybe could be avoided with the true meaning of love.

I know, there are so many dysfunctional relationships affecting the children and their relationships when they grow up. Sometimes a vicious cycle. Thanks, Mala! Blessings to you.
