Two Words - Poem by chuck Hurley

We would do well to teach our children more about compromise and less about love; as one is leaned and the other is gift to all.

Love is an emotional word that produces good feelings inside of us that are special, unique and desirous. It is a word tthat defies explicit or a singular definition, needs no interpretation for it is the highest form of human expression and without it mankind would be as if our earthly sun was taken away.

One is called a groom and the other is called a bride
Intense feelings of life; the ultimate gift carried inside.
Man was given strength to protect and provide
The woman to nurture and has nothing to hide.

Some have much more and some have even less
Both have everything to do with life; including happiness
It is not what we got but how but how much we are blest.
Life is comprised of chapters and pages in a book of preference
An occasional footnote like a musical reference
The memory of touch and sound and of course; human presence.

Every story has a beginning else there be no end
Thoughts into words and none to pretend.
Man has set the seasons and also the years
Torn between valor and honor and boy-hood tears.

Humanities roles are embedded on our soul
One can not pick and chose the pieces but just protect the whole.
Love is a word that produces good feelings inside
Much can be accomplished by the words inclusive and compromise.
