Empowering Love - Poem by Claude Simpson

The route of life
Pushes a gear.
It drives us to the edge
Onto a reflective trail.
It leads us to faith;
It forms a synergy
To strengthen the mind
As we row and sail.

The route of life
Pushes a gear
So we select a number
To derail travesty.
We input hard work;
As we input dedication
Asserting a reset
To prosperity.

The route of life
Pushes a gear.
It derides sadness;
It derides hate;
It gives us peace;
It gives us joy;
It gives us happiness
At any rate.

It shows us peace;
It shows us love;
It shows us joy;
It shows us hope;
As we ride the wave
Of affluence,
From an influence
We can cope.

It gives a love so true;
It gives a love for you;
It gives a love we feel;
It gives a love to heal;
Unconditional for all
For us to avoid a fall;
Upholding a love so real
One we can all reveal.

    A great poem, a thoughtful perspective...Maybe too often we think of love as the agency that empowers...and not as that which can be empowered. (Report) Reply
