Exploring my talent, putting it into use in the literary world for the benefit of humanity and promotion of communication
Different people have different perspectives to life and this does not exclude the word love.
Having view some people's position on this word love, I decide to pen this short words down to show what it is that somers disposit and though about love is.
Love to some people
Is one of those "words"
Words that any of the
Opposite see could use
To deceive his or her partner
To many people there is
Nothing called love
Love does not exist in
The world their belief
Is that "love" is a four letter words
That appears on dictionaries
And holy writs where the word
"Charity" has not been used.
It is an imagination coined out
By some people in the ancient days they say
It is a word some priests
Believed and use to cajole
Their ardent followers
To kowtow, succumb and
Or surrender to someone
Whom they should not
It is a word used to
Word that makes a person
Vulnerable and should neither
Be allowed in the society again
Nor make mention of
It is a word which when one
Notices that a person wants
To make mention of, one should
Plug his or her ears with cotton wool
So that one would not hear it being mentioned
Because such does not exist in
Reality it is a word that they
Opined should be removed from
The dictionaries because it has
Led many into grievous errors and
Uptill today they are yet to recover from
If not removed from dictionaries it
Ought to be given new definitions and
Meanings such that it won't lead
Some other people to errors again
Such is their belief about the word
"Love" and anything called love by
People night them, therefore, they
Frown at it and do anything and
Everything to go against the word
They live their lives normally
And discovered that everything
Is going on well with them.
Since all is okay with them
And they see people suffering
On the basis of their professed and
They said to themselves that
They have been vindicated by
Their position on "love"
