Love Love Love - Poem by Michael Shepherd

Oh it's so easy to say -

'Give what you think you lack -
You feel unloved? Then give love, and love, and love...'...

On the other hand -
Do you have any better advice?

    The poem is lovely!
    Though the 'advise' is paradoxical in my humble opinion. Not sure if that is intended though.: S (Report) Reply

    Advice is one thing, implementing that advice is another. It sounds simple enough, but it's difficult to give love if you feel unloved. Though, if it's possible, it might just solve all of the world's problems. Great write... profound in a simple sort of way!
