Go With Love (A Poem)

Your-task-is-not-to-seek-for-love-but-merely-to-seek

Sometimes people are just difficult
Perhaps it’s a temporary life issue
Sometimes it’s a permanent way of being.

To criticize endlessly
to anger easily
To defend against a false but perceived attack

Isn’t it just as easy to be loving
And kind, and generous in thought?
Especially to someone you say you love?

No one is perfect
Not you, not me.
But love is.

So if it’s perfection you want
Go with love.
If it’s warmth and support you want
Go with love
If it’s a better world you seek
Go with love.

Always, go with love.
It will ease your fears
And take away your pain.

Go where the love is.
Go with love.
Just love, as a verb.
As a way of life.

  1. I love that Rumi quote. The habit of fear can be a strong barrier, manifested in “To criticize endlessly, to anger easily, To defend against a false but perceived attack…” Barriers can be dismantled if one is willing to do the work.
