    What in the World

    We all claim to know what it is
    And how to go about it
    But as to how in love to live
    Can we do it I doubt it

    And if love means you never have to say
    To one another you’re sorry
    Why do we love in such a way
    That causes each other to worry

    And why do people who are jealous of
    The feelings shared by two
    Swear by heaven and earth you’re not in love
    But something is terribly wrong with you

    Why is it when your blood pressure is run up
    By the one you think so highly of
    The one who at times can treat you so rough
    The one that you madly love

    And as your feelings through a gauntlet go
    You wonder under God’s Heaven above
    The one thing millions want to know
    What in the World is Love

    When love goes left instead of right, yes we do have to stop and wonder. Many can relate to this.

    I think if one truly wants to know love, then they should just look around them. If we model the love in our hearts to the love of Jah that lives within us, we'll be a step in the right direction, of course there's no real way to fully grasp with all it's interpretations this thing called love, but knowing how to love Jah first and ourselves second, and see him in everything living,will surely help us all along.
    Respect, nice piece.

    Hi ewopper :wave: :)
    Welcome to the board :)
    Not sure if you are a brother or sister so imma keep it neutral and just say HAAAY! lol :)

    I enjoyed the pieces you posted though it was kinda overwhelming to post so many at one time I wasnt sure where to respond first lol

    I dont think theres anything wrong with a poet being eager to share their work
    Its just that you gotta pace yourself :) It gives us readers the time to read and reflect and give you a sincere response.

    Also... like brother Khasm pointed out its a common courtesy kind of thing. No one enforces that you respond to others but some of us whom have been here longer try to lead by example with a sort of "GOLDEN RULE" kinda thang, in giving props to others in addition to having our own posts.

    I can see by your pieces that you are someone who cares about the brethren so Im sure you didnt mean to offend anyone in your eagerness to post :read: :)

    Hope to see you spreading and sharing that love you are a plentiful with lol :)

    did you write this? If so, it was a good poem,
    Very insightful and straight to the point..

    Love is complex- but its complexity never felt so good...
