The Gift Of Love
and post notes and photos about your poem like Edward Ibeh.
The gift of love is what makes our world
spin on its axis; the most paramount of treasures
The greatest gift to the human race
Give love freely; give it to yourself, and to life!
What a spectacular thing to be addicted to?
Intoxicate your loved ones with it
God gave it to us so we could pay it forward
For it makes life worth living, and worth fighting for
We must give it as much as we receive it
Who doesn't need love especially now?
It's unfortunate our "commander-in-chief"
is spewing just the opposite
This country of ours would be a better place
if he'd abstain from sowing seeds
of bigotry and division for a change.
Demons of hatred take our souls hostage
and leave it destined for destruction. Hate is...
ultimately slain by the healing power of love
We could make this world a better place
by helping to lift people drained by misfortune
with care and compassion, dissolving their woes
If we could do something that extraordinary
then our reason for living shall not be in vain.
Let's unhook the tentacles of hate by giving....the gift of love!
