A Better Place

Sometimes it's difficult to love, in a world filled with so much hate,
But it starts from within, how can you say you care, with double padlocks and chains on your gate,

The locks are to keep evil out, at least that's the truth, you tell yourself,
If you start out loving everyone you meet, you wouldn't turn away anyone, who comes seeking help,

You've learned to be on guard, due to the people who took advantage of you, and those who broke your heart,
You're letting others change you, because of them, new relationships are doomed from the start,

Love is a more than a feeling, it's a choice, its a behavior, it's a way of life, it's a skill, that won't progress if not used,
Everyone deserves to be loved, but you won't love anyone, unless there's something in it for you,

You can't control others actions, evil is powerful, if it's trying to get you, it will, hurt will find you sometimes, it will knock you down,
Brush it off, get back up, and show the world your smile, because that was then, and this is now,

The choice you have to make is not who is worthy of your love, the choice is how do you love others, from the bottom to the top,
Help them, hear them, hold them, never turn away anyone who comes seeking help, whether they are worthy or not,

Love everyone from the day you meet them, because you may be the only person who ever loved them at all,
Love seems small and taken for granted by those who have it, but if it's new to you, any amount of love you receive, isn't small,

Be a bigger person, bigger is better, love the evil around you, because without the evil, love wouldn't feel so great,
You'll be betrayed, you'll get hurt, but if you love those who hurt you, trust me, loving them wasn't the mistake,

Don't just be different, be the difference, evil will show itself more clearly, when you confront it with you heart,
Every situation needs a hero, if you don't know how to help someone through the hard times, LOVE is the best place to start,
