The Licence To Love - Poem by Rohan Rinaldo Felix

I will love, for that is my duty and purpose
I will love, for in it is my salvation
Don't try to shame me
I am not going to back off you
If you want to sidestep your purpose, that's to your misery
But don't try to fell my flowering gift from above!

I will love, and will feel no shame
I will love, despite parental pressure and the threat of no gain
I will love you, even if you behave like you don't love me.
All the emptiness and the hurt within you I can erase
If you allow me, with love and every allied grace.

My God loves and i will love
You say that I am infatuated, but look at you!
I dare to make the effort, and I dare to listen to my God, while,
You sit back in your lazy chair while humanity goes amiss
Now that you've finished, remember to blow me a kiss.
