On Love

Love is…

 

A mothers love that

leaves her gray at thirty-five

 

A fathers love that 

leaves his pockets empty

 

A sisters love that 

leaves her without a childhood of her own

 

A brothers love that

sends him to work before his adolescence 

 

A friends love that

keeps her feelings inside

 

Love is…

 

A revolutionary leaders restless life

A teachers devotion 

A charismatic leaders death

 

LOVE IS A SACRIFICE!

On Life

What is life and what role do I play?

Life is like a broadway play without a dress rehearsal

            chaotic

            confusing

The critics are always there to let you know what a mess you’ve made of things

While offering no solutions

Period

            Point

                        Blank
