"LOVE"  [to seekers]

~free verse~
  
Love shall seek not....
but for its own satisfaction  
and will not be easily swayed  
from its course.  
   
It will....  
bend and twist you  
and shine and dim upon you  
while holding onto those within its grip.  
   
Until....  
they become pliant and giving  
trusting and alive  
with its genuine and crystal-clear vision.  
   
It will know you....  
even though  
you do not know yourself  
and until you do.  
   
It cannot....  
be captured  
and will not be controlled  
by anything other than love itself.  
   
It shall not....  
be fooled  
nor can it be substituted  
or replaced.  
   
For....  
Love is sufficient unto Love  
and can be known only  
to itself.  
   
Nothing known can destroy genuine Love.  
   
Love....  
will warmly embrace you  
but only upon finding you worthy  
to its demanding task.  
   
Until that occasion....  
you will ever be seekers  
of this lustrous gem we call –  
   
"LOVE"

"There is no single answer to the question of what love truly is,
but this I have found it is to me – perhaps, now to you!"
