Chance

Hiding beneath the crushing weight of life,

So fragile you barely existed at times.

But ever so softly the whisper

Of your soul reached the ears of love.

Slowly you unwrinkled a layer at a time.

And when you learned we all die someday

You began to blossom.

To Understand Love

Before you understand the depth of love

You must be willing to ride the wave,

With salt water tangling your hair

And blinding your vision. You must risk

Crashing upon the shore and living

With sandy grit embedded in your skin.

Before you know love as the lone thing

That keeps the world in focus

You must expose your soul to hatred;

You must see it in the eyes of a rabid man who

Tortures the souls of those unlike himself.

You must hear it in the words spoken

With intent to damage hearts and stomp spirits.

You must push against injustice by shining

As if you are the sun itself.

You must allow the goodness residing deep within to rise

Like an ocean swell moving under wind and wave,

across directions, and miles unknown.

You must be the weeping love who holds

The listless fingers taking his last breath…

Love wipes her tears, takes another breath, and tarries on.

When you become the love of no complaint

You will understand love is not constrained in life or death.
