A Soul's Release

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Love does not bind a soul but releases it,

gives freedom to explore the depths of life,

untethered in its true nature,

and never limited by expectations.


Love can never be objectified for any purpose,

rather, its expression can only be pure,

any rationale or intent the ceasing of it,

tarnishing limitless possibility.


Love may wear many clothes,

inhabit unlikely abodes,

but the recognition of it can only be through its own eyes,

eyes capable of selfless and unconditional giving.


Love is the highest ideal we can embrace in life,

its giving the worth of all trials and tribulations,

and only within it can we realise its epiphany,

and the possibilities of aspiration.


To embrace life to the fullest,

one cannot disregard love and all its potential,

because in itself it is our one defining attribute,

and the ability to express it, our greatest gift.


Those who cannot find it within their hearts,

are left wanting in life, lost in the mundane,

and the harsh challenges of life without love,

living a self-centred and solitary existence.
