Love has taught me not to look for it but to find its presence

It has shown me the dullness in its absence

It is not perfect and doesn’t aim to be

It is like you and me and deserves more than just a try

It is much deeper in its roots

Even sweeter in its produce

It is accepting not fake but realistic

Shows you ways and gives you chances

It is the complete opposite of pessimistic

It balances

Don’t overbear it by your bearings

You know it hides behind the secrecies of caring

It’s like the Sunday Sun and the Monday Moon

Nothing special, indispensable for survival

Fathom it before you endorse

It is the “lived happily ever after”

Over the mania of the Prince charming on a horse

Let it uplift you to a better being

Learn from it and be humble in what you are seeing

It can destroy you they may say

Or it changes you, shows you a better day

Did they also allude it will although, always stay?

Love, what is it?

Don’t just ask for it at your worst, understand it first.
