Without forgiveness, there cannot be love Both of these emotions are sent from above God is love; and we were created out of a surplus of that same love We love because He first loved us; it's a blessing from above But, unfortunately humanity hasn't fathomed its purity And made it all about fleeting feelings of lust and vulgarity Understanding, sacrifice, patience and forgiveness are the tenets of this emotion All around teenagers and innocent souls are seeking this magic potion The reason why most people feel so incomplete Instead, they try to complete themselves with things that seem sweet But the reason why they even feel the need to love and feel loved Is because they were created from love, by love and to love After scouting the depths of the oceans They still confuse this delicate emotion It's about self-sacrificing and putting another before you It's about serving, not service. But comprehend this, only a few Love is not possessive; it is not tight-fisted And it definitely is'nt all those things twisted Love rationalizes for the sake of the other But, under the guise of this emotion, wolves devour Everyone has a unique temperament, that's true Accepting people without attempting to change them, in that view Displaying and operating in patience Accomodating their views and ways without getting complacent It's not difficult to fall in what-may-seem-like love But after the initial attraction wears off and you remove those gloves To endure in silent admiration Without an iota of expectation Endurance and sustenance beyond decades Without fallacy and irreverent charades Don't attempt to or expect people to change Love them with their flaws, all the same But sometimes, it's better to take a step back Love from afar, develop that knack The one who cannot forgive does not truly feel it Because from love, forgiveness cannot be split Jesus taught us about unlimited forgiveness Not to condemn and weigh-in those considerations True love is unconditional It isn't convenience-based or situational!

I have a very creative imagination. Most of my poems do not hint at my life/situation. Kindly refrain from drawing such parallels. Much of what I write is purely fictional. Situations and examples may be hypothetical. I have always written about topics I am passionate about – Christianity, makeup, melancholic poetry, food, romance, women’s issues, soulful music, narratives, etc. Given the circumstances, my gender, situation, geography, etc., I feel the need to put up a disclaimer every time I write a romantic/melancholic/intense piece!
