Listen To Your Love - Poem by Michael Walkerjohn

Love is not necessary
nor is it a necessity
is not power
not opinionated
love is however
can be tremendous
be an heroic epic
however love is never constant
who are we if we are not of love?
and if we are not of love
then who the hell are we?
love is never misunderstood
and love never ill treats
love is a healing treat and
is understood by even the
most freshly born
so, if you do not
understand what love is by now
then you must have horns!

    Very nice. The poem unfolds the role of love in our lives. Love is the foundation of our existence. Thanks, Michael.
    and if we are not of love
    then who the are we?
    and.... love is a healing treat
