Love Is Blind - Poem by Mazwi Sedibe

Love is blind but its sight sees beyond all flaws.
Love matters much but it is weighed less.
Love is hated much but it cares less.
Love doesn't walk alone for trust is the guide dog.
Love doesn't break at its dark surroundings, but
Love knows it is not immune to mistakes.

Love is blind
Its sees through fat, fetish and race.
Love sees no lack of melanin nor freckles.
Love loves all, love leaves all for love.
Love lets go of other love for Real love.

Love loves hate
Love has none,
But it is the fate.
Love in shortcomings,
It comes out tall.
Love is not falling when you fall.
Like the blind man who can't tell what is all.
Love is all.

Love is all
To him that helped him that lost his walking stick.
To her that forgave him that lost control of his joy stick.
To all that played you on the sick love mind trick.

Love is blind but can see error and reconcile.
Love is blind but not blind enough to see
When it is not loved enough.
To see when the going gets tough
And when enough is enough.
Love is blind but its open mind knows
Exactly that the bed is not comforting
When you come to it whilst in your rough.

A lesson from a blind man is the love in his eyes
Learn from a blind man and see love in his eyes.
Love is simple as blind as it is
It sees no dimple, pimple nor cripple.
Love is kind, keeps no grudges and
Always starts on a clean page.
And mostly disregards age.
Walk on his trial to follow him.

    love is a mystery. some say it is blind, some say just the opposite. some it is heaven, others say it is hell.
    but we all want to love and to be loved. we all want to give all that we hve to the one whom we love.
    thank you dear poet for this poem. tony

    Love is simple as blind as it is
    It sees no dimple, pimple nor cripple.
    Love is kind, keeps no grudges and
    Always starts on a clean page..... //.... A multi-dimensional probe in the world of love. Thanks.
