Arise & Shine - Poem by Ryan Lee Morris

The only way to love,
Is through love.
You must seek love,
Then you will find love,
Eventually to become love.
The stairway to heaven,
Is at the end of the highway to hell.
For it not easy.
It is not love that hurts,
It is becoming love that hurts.
Our idea of love, is not love,
But want.
The cross is the example.
The man was the lesson.
The act was the proof.
Follow the example,
Learn the lesson,
Witness the proof.
Love of this is earth,
Is anything but truth.
There are no short cuts.
Or you will cut yourself short.
For the man on the cross,
Became true love in the final moment,
When it was done.
For when it is done,
You will find it.
And realize it always was there.
Inside the man,
Waiting to be awoken.
Arise and shine!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

John 14: 6
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

1 John 4: 16
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
