It Is Not Easy to Love

 Read about the image and its source  here

It is not easy to love with utter abandon
Of self
To say ‘God, I believe You, I love You’
Then lie on the altar of sacrifice
It is not easy to profess His love
In full awareness of He
Who beholds the heart
...and we cannot open our hearts to love
while clenching fists
It is not easy to love
Until it hurts
And yet
That is the only Love
There is

The next time we say ‘I love you’ we should consider the cost
For love is not a feeling, but a laying down of our uttermost


  1. This was bril. Just just. Loved it.

  2. I liked it, too. And it's kind of fun when you do free verse now and again.



Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
