One Road


Now is not about then

A moment of the past

Now is not about when

A future yet uncast

Now is about now

And it is passing fast



Will is not about might

A race we hope to run

Will is not about right

A battle to be won

Will is about will

Getting something done



Love is not about you

That view is way too small

Love is not about the few

Not a battle line to draw

Love is about love

A love for one and all



Work is not about life

Not who we have become

Work is not about strife

For perfect there are none

Work is about sharing

The road which is but one


Now will love work?

    I had a conversation very similar to your poem this morning. True love always prevails, but unfortunately, I believe a lot of people are too selfish to understand what true love really means. With that being said though, those of us who understand the love is much bigger than ourselves have the advantage of showing the world how powerful it is. All we can do is continue to spread it and hope that others will listen. Wonderfully penned, my dear! ❤
