All In The Name Of Love Poem by Rose Marie Juan-austin

All In The Name Of Love

Rating: 4.9

We plunged into another world
Only armed with hope
To make it through
We selflessly meshed
Two diverse personalities
Absolutely integrated into one
In the name of love.

The roads ahead of us
Might be as smooth
As baby's bottom
And as flawless
As a work of art
Or as rough as a rock
And as thorny as touch me not.

But we may escape
The roughest
And thorniest
Of them all
And be stranded
In the most welcoming road.

Sometimes we may have
Different views
On what road to take
We want to avoid
The hardships
It entails.

But is it not that we are sometimes
Gauged on the perils
We undertake in life
That the most dangerous times
The triumph tastes the sweetest.

There are cases
Fragmentation evolves
And heart grows cold
Feel empty
Dying slowly.

But we have to remember
Our vow for each other
And the road
From which we started
That we tried and hoped
To make it through
All in the name
Of love.

WOW! What a grand finale: All in the name of love. Few people knows that God IS Love. To my eyes this is an extreme excellent poetry, which deserves full respect. While reading, the words flow from my tongue like honey for the throats. Reading this time and again, it could be a heroic song. Most beautifully worded and with powerful hope. A 10+++++++++++++++++++++++ This goes straight toMyPoemList.

When everything goes hunky dory and the two are still together that is one scenario. Another, when despite roadblock, the two are still together. That is love. All in the name of love, a lovely write.

Reread this marvel, And thought, greatness and true talent and passion, never grow old. they just mellow and get better, competing with the deepest feelings and turning into poetic gold. As is the case with this wonderful worded lace.
