Exploring my talent, putting it into use in the literary world for the benefit of humanity and promotion of communication
Love has different translations in different tribes and races and cultures. To different people love means different things. However one thing is usually referred to by people in my land which is said to help a lot in development and growth of anything on earth and it is the nonphysical part of the issue.
Love also has nonphysical part, this nonphysical part is what this short poetry work is about.
Virtually everything (if not everything) happening on Eartha's a spirit involved with it
This means there is a spirit of love
The nonphysical part of humans
That accommodates emotions
Characters and influence moods
Has also been discovered to be
Playing prominent role in love.
Some people have been found
To express physical likeness to others
While their nonphysical parts
Have been found to be "dissonance"
With their physical expressions.
This though may not be obtained
At the inception of their "declarations"
And their expressions
But using one of the surest
Tests God has given all humans
Which is called "Time"
Their deep sited positions
Become revealed, as people
Now discover that their physical
Display and array of likeness
Are at variance with their
The naive ones becomes
Baffled at this discovery
While the aged and those who have
Been in close rapport with aged
Do not become gravely surprised
Sometimes though those latter groups
Of people could also feel puzzled at this
Discovery especially when the person has
For long been successfully coating
Its nonphysical part from outsiders
Nothing could be more shocking
And disturbing than this revelation
Knowing that the person being trusted
And relied upon for long has been an
Opposite of what has been known of him/her
Because of this kind of revelation
The aged have associated genuine
Love with a spirit, therefore, to them
Yea, to all who does not want to be fools
Love transcends physical demonstrations
Genuine love must have a spirit of love
Backing it up so that physical demonstrations
Would be a revelation of nonphysical part
Of the person.
When the physical matches the nonphysical
Then like a goat whose skins cannot be
Obtained except killed, the expressed love
Can't be stopped except the person is killed.

Thank you Pamela. It has been in my mind to write few things about love, having seen and read other works from other writers from the ancient days and presently.
My writing spirit is lifted knowing you like this. Have a pleasant day.
