SIMPLICITY OF LOVE



I dream of the simplicity of love
Love unwavering
I dream that one day—my people will understand
That meaning of love—

That love is an attitude
Love is a baby's smile
Untainted by world views—pure of heart—

Love should be the catalyst
That defines us as a people
There are no races, no cultures or religious viewpoints
There are no agendas—no backyard dealings—

Love cannot be compromise—in its purest form
That purest form—which derives from the heart
For the heart is pure-
The emotional barometer that gauges our temperament—

Truly, love is someone
           Helping a friend in need
                    Taking a moment to enjoy a person's smile—

Love is not recreational
It is the foundation
          Of our oral history
That history—that has been here
                    Since the beginning of time
FOR THE SIMPLICITY OF LOVE HAS NO BOUNDARIES—

          Gregory E Upshaw
