Double edges

Love can seem burdensome

But only fear sees it that way

Love itself is everlasting and freeing

Our insecurities make it feel unreal

By way of our flawed expectations

And or damaged cynical teachers

Taught to us throughout our past

Our acceptance of something lesser

Is often a safe play to avoid loneliness

Only to feel imprisoned inside ourselves

The thing about conventual wisdom

Is sooner or later, it quickly expires                  

The only I’ve thing I found consistent

Is unconditional love… if we gift it

  1. Our insecurities make it feel unreal
    By way of our flawed expectations
    And or damaged cynical teachers
    Taught to us throughout our past
    Our acceptance of something lesser
    Is often a safe play to avoid loneliness

    Truer have not been written, Poet.
