 47. Sea of Jealousy
It amazes me
Beloved
That many
People believe,
That innocent
Children learn,
That love is
Defined
By how jealous
And possessive
One's mate
Gets over
The attention
Of another
Towards the
Object of their
Affection,
And call it
Proof of
Love.

I'm trying
To wrap my brain
Around it
Beloved,
How such a thing
Is a family
Value.

Its like
Living in
The ocean
Where you
Have only
Ever been able
To see a few
Meters in
Any direction
And being told
You are seeing
Clearly.

Just because
Someone told
You it was true
Doesn't make
It so.

The truth is
He beats you.
The truth is
You stay
Because you
Believe you
Deserve it.
But the most
Important truth
Is that love,
Real love,
Would never
Lay a finger
On you,
Unless it was
To make
Love with
You.

Fear doesn't
Come from
God,
Only Love does.

So fella,
When she whips
Around like that
And gives
You that look
Like daggers
Are flying out
Of her eyes
To murder you,
Her jealousy,
Isn't endearing,
Funny,
Or a sign
That you are
Loved…
It means you
Should walk away
Now,
While you still can,
Because she
Hopes to trap
You with
Getting pregnant.

What?
You thought
Jealousy was something
Only boys did?

Staying
With a boy
Or girl
Who is jealous
Doesn't prove
You love them.
It only shows
Children
The wrong
Way to be in a
Relationship
And call it healthy.
It's a lie,
To them,
And yourself,
And passes on
The poison
To the next
Generation.
You are living
Proof this is
So.

There is only
One way to get
Out of the sea
Of jealousy…
Rise up,
Get out,
And look for the
Light of love,
Through which
You can for
The first time
See for miles
Not meters,
For true love
Seeks not
To change
The other,
But oneself.
If they choose
To change
With you,
They will
By your
Actions,
Because words
Can fall
Only on deaf
Ears when
They are under
Water,
And you have
Risen
Above it.
