The Odyssey of Love


The Odyssey of Love

Life is but an odyssey,
an educational pursuit,
an evolutionary journey
to spiritually compute.
The purpose, though it is obscure,
seems, to me, quite clear...
we are here to learn to love
yes, love is why we're here.
Every lesson Life presents
though, too many to procure...
all lead back to loving,
for Love is the universal cure.
I believe the only lesson
that we are here to learn
encompasses education in
Love's giving and return.
Life's every situation
multi-faceted, divine...
begins with our Creator
For Love is His design.
He is Love and desires such
in everything we do...
The journey of the life He gives
is not a peer review.
Since we are His creation,
the lesson, then, is this...
we must love ourselves to be
respectful, not remiss.
And lastly, comes the lesson
to love each other well...
in compassion and forgiveness
and kindness to excel.
This is what the Odyssey
Of Life is all about...
A journey into Loving,
for back to Love we are en route.

I like the way this poem flows & the truth it shares

it makes you feel the artist and shows that she cares

it captured my attention and held it through the end

and left me kind of anxious to read of you again

Can never go wrong with the Golden Rule, which seems to lie at the heart of this fine poem.
