Love in its Purity

a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark

Love is a language of the heart-
It is prose and poetry
It is in film or comedy
And yet nothing can fathom
its own depth, height or breadth.

Love is a dream in every heart,
an object of conquest and war
It mirrors greed, pride and honor
And yet love’s own purity remains
above intrigues and heroic motives.

Love is a gift from above -
an agape love from the heart of God
We humans can abuse it,
ignore it,trample on it, burn it
but love surfaces out so purely
in its inmost beauty to protect,
affirm, preserve and uphold life.
