Let’s talk about a feeling, a feeling we can all share.
It’s called love, and while you might laugh,
or twist your face in a way that says otherwise,
when you search your feelings,
you know it’s true in all of us.

Just the word and the way it’s used… love…
it brings warmth to all hearts.
It has no gender and knows no foe.
There is no aversion, only intensity.

One who hates, some say, would know the farthest pole.
But hate, in all ways, loves that which we don’t.
Think not of the things that remind us least of love.

Fill yourself with things that you love,
and the entire world that knows will love you.
