The Ideal of love is to love, love 
isn't found in a person's fashion 
sense and it isn't represented 
by the amount in someone's 
pockets nor is it bounded by 
our shade of skin. Love see's 
perfection when your eyes only 
see's imperfections. The 
hindrance that I've come to find 
from this generation, Is some 
of us are misguided by one's  
outward appearance or we 
often vaule a person for their 
status. Rather than search 
someone's soul by using our 
hearts. I'm a firm believer in 
universal law which teaches: "It 
is In giving love, that we 
receive love" a true sentiment 
that some of us overlook, 
because in relationships we 
tend to  fall short from 
expectation and standards that 
we want from each other. I 
always thought how can we 
want to find love, but yet want 
too put a face to it.  Theirs no 
refund when it comes to loving 
a person, so don't waste your 
investment if your not willing 
the spend. I know we're all 
scared of the risk and the 
uncertainty in putting our trust 
and time in something we think 
that doesn't look promising, but 
it's that same fear we have 
built up that has us eluding 
love, at some  point we all need 
to understand we can't expect 
it to all be perfect. Even the 
flawless of any diamond is 
mined from the darkest coal. 
So how can we expect to shine 
as an union if we're not willing 
to struggle with the 
imperfections in one another.
