    the pursuit of permanence
    is an exercise in futility
    ....

    I believe only true love lasts forever...
    it is something that can't be
    given out in a prescribed...prepared
    dose...

    and ain't nobody worrying who's giving up the most...

    real love just....is...
    good love just....be


    ... just like truth, it's the
    only other thing that sets us free

    gifts like this can't be bought,
    we can't exchange affections for a bribe
    the properties of love can't be manufactured...
    faked or otherwise contrived...

    the pursuit of permanence is bogus
    if the method is to deceive...

    we have to give up the love we hope for...
    then watch how that scHtuff won't leave...

    thanks, sis...!

    ...speaking my thoughts into existence...
    there is no other way to say...like you said it...
    we are human...so...
    we are (i am) going to keep loving until
    we go to sleep in the grave...
    if i truly love (others), then
    my love (for them) lasts forever...

    true... true!
    i'm sure this wisdom
    comes from experience
    and i had to learn it that way
    tryin' to make permanence
    until the day i let it all go
    and loved rained down on
    me much more than
    before!
    can i testify, today?
    thank you!

    some observations, really...I've been

    having "heart-to-hearts" with people, young and old, regarding 'relationships'...and the common thread that runs through each one that has failed...is the spirit of desperation...and the forcing of the square peg into the round hole at all costs. And the ultimate cost? Bitterness, and a lesson that still seems to remain unlearned.

    Good Book says we should be anxious for NOthing!
    (I do try to practice what I be preachin, tho) lol

    Let's all relax and release! :)
    thank you all for feelin me.
