The Weight Of Love (Love Love Love Love) Poem by Udiah (witness to Yah)

The Weight Of Love (Love Love Love Love)

Rating: 3.7


I once was asked concerning love versus hate
Why does it seem that hate is so great?
While hate is a very strong emotion too
Nothing can equal love that is true

The weight of hate is very heavy to bear
While it seems like love is lighter than air
Accounts of hate make a big news headline
While actions of love you must look hard to find

But when you consider that love is patient, kind,
Envieth not, not pompous, not puffed up, not rude,
Seeketh not her own, slow to anger, thinks no evil,
Rejoices not in wrong doing, but rejoices in the truth,
Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,
Endures all things, and never fails*

You soon learn that the density of love is so much,
Although the scales be heaped with a great volume of hate
It's catapulted by a mere measure of love's touch,
Love strengthens the bearer so one feels not its weight

*author's translation of 1 Cor 13: 4-7

Sometimes, we take the help of 'weapon of hate' to destroy thriving and prospering of crime. But, that weapon doesn't come from the emotion of hate, rather it is triggered from the Matrix of Love in order to satisfy the Interest of Mankind. In that sense too, LOVE is greater than hate. Chandan
