As Simple As “love” (Poem)

We are born with a natural will to survive-
As we grow, this becomes our primary drive.

We begin our lives, always asking “ WHY? ”
The answers we receive - never do, - satisfy

Surely, there’s more to life, then to follow the rules.
For all of life’s mysteries are not taught in our

To heed to our calling and follow our dreams
We find the world coming together just as a

With freedom, we find the answers to all of our
For united we all work together in our new-born frontier

We see the comfort, in sentimental conservatism
However, we must believe in a moral liberalism

For to live with God’s love, is not to obey his rules.
But, to know in our heart they were created as tools

By practicing either constituted, or scriptural law
We all come to the page which states we must

When we leave the courtyard, or the church
We have not a script, to involve us with research.

By confronting our neighbor, with what comes from
The heart.
We find we are masters, of the oldest and most
Creative art.

Love worketh no ill to his neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law
Bible, Romans ch. X111, V.13
