Only One Result

So many ways to count the cost.

So many different types of loss.

 

So many hearts that know such pain.

So many afraid to love again.

 

So many tears that people cry.

So many ways to live or die.

 

So many hopes and dreams delayed.

So many debts to fate unpaid.

 

So much hope to find again.

So much love contained within.

 

So many better ways to live.

So many avenues to give.

 

So many cannot receive such gift.

So many refuse to be uplifted.

 

A grateful sort of loving flows

When love given,

Received,

Believes

And knows.

 

So many choices,

One result.

Love is all….

Love is all.

Vacuum

Love expired,

Ended, cast out,

Burnt for the flame

Of self-sacrifice.

Martyrdom shot to hell.

Vacuous vacuum

Tenderness trod on

Troubled times

Tears and recriminations

Bitterness ensuing.

Hollow-filled

Hurt

Tears

More tears

Down

Deeper and down.

Phoenix rise

Burnt out

Rise

Refill the feelings

Let life live again.
