LOVE WARRIOR

 

 

 

I think it is quite obvious in this world we’re trying to create how many have forgotten the delicate relationship that exists between love…and hate.

 

I believe our creators created us for one reason…that reason is to love…

and I think we’ve moved quite far away from the world they were thinking of.

 

A world where we love ourselves and realize how every person is our sister and our brother…how, if we are to survive…to thrive…we need to love each other.

 

Because when love is not cherished…when it’s not nourished…before it is too late…

love not only dies…but can easily turn to hate.

 

And once love has changed to hate and a heart is filled with pain…

hate does not change so easily back to love again.

 

For once its roots take hold after the seeds of hate are sown…

hate will use every weapon in its arsenal before relinquishing its throne.

 

Love knows it is more powerful…that she has the will…the strength…the might…

but, being love, she wants to love…and has been reluctant to engage hate in this fight.

 

Love has said…be patient…love will win out in the end…we know!

and all the while, as love waits, hate grows and grows and grows.

 

Looking at the world hate’s created…I think love can no longer wait…

It’s time for love to fight…to join the battle against hate.

 

For now that hate has its knee firmly pinned against love’s throat…

it’s time to fight with every weapon in love’s arsenal…

including our voices and our votes.

 

It’s time to be a love warrior…to stand up unafraid…strap on our boots…

and attack hate where it is most vulnerable…by cutting off its roots.

 

There is one problem, and love knows this, when love warriors fight to redirect their fate…that somewhere in this fight…we too…may begin to hate.

 

But if we are ever going to have a say in the world we’re trying to make…

this is a road that must be traveled…

this a risk we all must take.
