Love is Life

There is
Nothing in
My heart
Driving
Me but
Love.

Love is
My fuel
My fire
My greatest
Strength to
Weakness
When I
Let doubt
Rule
Me like
A monarch
Destined to
Break
My heart
Just to
Prove
I am
Nothing
Without
And
Undeserving of
The very
Essence
Moving
Me
Forward,
Love.

Love
Isn’t in
Doubt

It doesn’t
Question
Its existence

Or make
Believe
It is to be
Without
Itself because
It is
Itself
Undeserving.

No, love
Is the
Conqueror.

Love is
The hope
The morning
Star
The breath of
All life.

And it is
The essence of
Me.

It is
The loudest
Voice in
My head
Raised to
A pitch
From heart
Higher than
Any doubt
Could ever
Reach.

It is
The saving
Grace of
Truth.

And the truth is
I am.

And love
Just
Is.

In itself
It is
Beyond
The depth of
Worldly
Expectation.

It dives
Deep into
The soul
And
Reminds us to
Forget
Judgment
Forget
Bias
Forget to
Measure
Human
Worth on
Anything less
Than its
Own value—
Love.

Love is.

Just is.

And love is
Enough to
Live.

Because
Without it
We aren’t
Living at all.

Any breath
Taken
Without
Love is just
Air but
In love
It is
Life.

So I
Shall
Live each
Day
Breathing in
Love and
I am
Certain to
Find
Peace when
My living days
Cease to
Be.

Because on
My last
Breath
I will
Breathe in
Love and
Find
Eternal
Peace.

This I do not doubt.
