Only Love Counts - Poem by samuel nze

Only love counts
Honesty may prove valuable
Build trust
Make me believe all you say

But honesty like faith
Cannot charm me
Truth is not always logical
I believe when I choose
Doubt comes when it will
Stays long enough
And goes of its own accord

Only love counts
Honesty may prove expedient
Confirm hope
But will not bond me to you

    inspired by your poem this haiku

    beach holiday
    teenagers in love carve
    a love sign onto a coconut tree
