In yesterdays post, I mentioned how we needed more love in the world so that there can be less room for hate. To show you all how firmly I grasp to this idea, here is a poem that I just wrote this morning ….
Love and Be Loved
We may love our cars, our clothes, and our rings,
But no love is reciprocated by these material things.
We may feel anger, hate, pain, and sorrow,
But our loved ones will be there for us from today to tomorrow.
We may only have eyes for the evil things in life,
But there exists a beauty that goes unrivaled by this strife.
Seek out that which gives you comfort and joy,
And know that there is hope for every girl and boy.
Life may be fleeting, but love can endure.
Love and be loved.
– Emily Manns
There are days where it seems impossible to find a glimmer of hope for the future of humanity, but we cannot give in to such disparaging thoughts. So long as we all have something to hold onto, something that we hold dear to our hearts, there is still hope. Perhaps these are the ramblings of a person who still holds on to the naive thinking’s of a child, but sometimes children are able to give the best insights into the world. Their hearts have yet to be tainted by prejudice and hate; they are able to see the world for what it is and not as others make it out to be. If we all thought along the same lines as the most naive among us, then perhaps the world would not be filled with so much bloodshed and tears.
I hope some of you were able to find some comfort in my words. If not, then leave your criticisms and/or opinions in the comments below. Everyone has a different perspective to offer on life, and I would be more than happy to hear them. Until next time, I send you all my love in hopes that it may bring your to a brighter tomorrow.
