Could One Love Ever Be Recognized by Every Human Without Dressing It into Different Garments of Symbolisms?
Could One Love Ever Be Recognized by Every Human Without Dressing It into Different Garments of Symbolisms?

Whether it's Christian's or Hindu's heart

there is no love that better sells

and it's so futile trying to be smart

over sounds of church's or cow's bells.


Symbols that divide us in faith and reason

make of human history such a mocking story

with loving and hating having their season

and with insane violence basking in its glory.


Where are these gods when human hearts go cold?

Like heavenly cops hiding in dark places

feasting on holy doughnuts in chariots of gold

only in some books to show off their faces.


Maybe love is better without all that dressing

into garments of symbols confusing human mind

nakedness was always much more of a blessing

whether love was divine or of other kind.


Indeed, love is one, in a child and in a sinner

and hearts beat the same under all kinds of skin

they don't need judges to call a love cleaner

and no one is sinless to name it a sin.


Could we proclaim such a stripping divine

freeing our hearts from symbols and names

from every label and discriminating sign

cleaning our love from all separating games.

      This is a poignant reminder to not judge another's sin. Very insightful poetry!

      Val, my friend, this is very deep. I like the line that says:

      " Where are these gods when human hearts go cold?

      Like heavenly cops hiding in dark places"

      feasting on holy doughnuts in chariots of gold...

      When I think of love...

      We can choose to love or, choose to hate.

      When I think of hate...

      We can choose to hate or, choose to love.

      (I hate to do this Val, but if I may briefly quote this scripture)

      Luke 6:43-44. "For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit... For every tree is known by its own fruit.

      A person's heart indicates the path they will go. If you take away religion, politics, and anything else people use you're still dealing with a human being who took worldly emotions and used them the way they wanted to.

      Well done Vlad. Beautifully written.

      Nakedness, whether it be in stripping away the veils of deceit or conceit; opening the mind to a "breath of fresh air;" a willingness to "say it like it is;" and of course being physically naked in the open air, amongst like-minded people who are enlightened to the magic of living as nature intended......the effects are very similar: freedom.

      Dana---Don't "hate to quote the Scriptures", please. Coming from your noble heart, anything that has made it that way is welcome.
