    there is none
    humans have no respect for the earth or the sun..
    the sun to them would be a rising stock in the new
    york stock exchange
    preachers like building buildings w/ tithe money from their members
    and juxtapositionally
    corporations use bribe money for your state congressmen and senators
    the only love out here is love of money
    and the only light they see is green- but those beams will fracture
    b/c where there's no love there's no light
    achromatic people break up easy
    b/c there's not enough love in them to fight
    that's why the divorce rate is at it's highest height...
    and sh()t, black people do we really love each other??
    do you see men respecting women like they would their mothers
    and women loving savings more than material cravings
    everybody trying to get personal ratings
    b/c the only love is you love to think someone is always hating
    so where is the love
    when preachers and teachers cant convince me of truth
    and nothing but drunken memories are left for our youth
    and governments can't sustain in their destined fall
    and we are all dead seeds in the land of time
    and when love has been reduced to the beholder's eye and eyedea
    in their cluster of confusion and fear
    confined
    to a race culture and class and
    when truth and sacrifice are no longer love's translatable criteria
    when that's what love is combined-translative action and reaction
    and thanks to all of you
    i can't get no satisfaction

    where is love!!!

    Great Flow

    I really enjoyed your version as well of where is love!
    It is often hard to see and find. I can relate when you wrote.

    I like how you focused on the world and the greed that money creates. The void left in caring and the lack of real caring.
