Love

 

In a world a long way from here, I see love-faithful and true-

pounding against the solid brick wall, hopeless and helpless.

It's a love standing strong and unconditional-frightened yet awe struck at it's power.

 

Inside a pact to a soul fueled by hope,

I feel the love screaming for freedom, crying to be seen. Love waiting to be noticed-

leaving millions of people falling in it's depths.

 

Only an ocean separates you and I,

three words separates me from where it took place.

I still feel a love so alive and true.

 

From the emotions billowing from a rose garden,

a sign pointing to the unavoidable.

I see love. A love toward another heart

and a slowly standing hope that will give you strength.

 

It's the love of the nations that is so filled with hate.

Maybe we an inspire them, to love. No matter what happens,

and to hold the hand that wipes your tears.

 

Over the mountains, it can help you soar. I can feel, see, hear the love of all...

a love that can build a castle,

and make reality a little more liveable.

This is so beautiful and so emotionally gripping. I love this verse where you wrote "In a world a long way from here, I see love-faithful and true- pounding against the solid brick wall, hopeless and helpless."... What a beautiful analogy of love, beating against the brick wall helplessly. I love this piece. Great job.

Thank you very much
