Love is not an act
Nor is it simply a feeling.
It is many things
Crammed into four letters.
The word 'love' is twisted,
stretched, and overused
to stand for:
Like, sex, materialism.
It can chain or free.
But love is really a lifestyle,
a legacy, a calling,
A command.
Love is the ONLY thing keeping the
human race alive.
Love is what brought us
into being.
Love is who you must find
to live forever.

I really like this poem, Barni. You have some very good metaphors. I really like the line, 'love is really a lifestyle.' I also like the line, 'love is who you must find.' I never really thought of love as a lifestyle before, but your comparison reminds me of Margaret Atwood's poem. The truth of the poem makes you think, while the reality of it makes you smile. Great.
Hey good job Barni aka Guppie aka Barni. I liked it!
