    Love…
    Define it!
    What does it mean?
    I suppose love comes in many different ways or does it?

    I think that the wrong choice or meanings of words are misrepresented for love.
    For example…
    People say that love makes you act on impulse without reason. That it comes from the feeling of wanting something or someone that you don’t have the power to acquire,
    That’s not love that’s desire.

    So what is love?
    What does it mean?
    How does one know that they have love?
    It could be lust in disguise.

    Let me explain…picture this…
    You see the person that you think you might love, your hands get all sweaty, your heart begins to race, and there’s no one on earth that could take their place.

    You look into one anothers eyes, you think “I give to you all my trust” then you realize
    what you just thought isn’t love it’s lust.

    So now you’re back where you began,
    But realizing love is not in a man.

    Love, everybody wants it but doesn’t know where to look,
    It’s not in a song or a book,
    Love, it has been with us all along,
    Feeding our emotions and growing strong.

    So where is love?
    I can’t find it; well you didn’t look,
    Just search your heart that’s all it took.

    Yes, we can't love any one else if we don't truly love ourselves. Love or lust? Love or desire? Seek within and then we shall know. Flow on.
