"Love" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 31/3/2009

So What Does LOVE REALLY Mean To You .... ???
Your Lovers' Touch Or The Things They DO .... ???
That Make You FEEL Your Love Is REAL ... ?!?

Well I've Said Before That UNCONDITIONAL LOVE ...
Came From My MUM And That's For SURE ... !!!!!

A Love of STRENGTH Right To Her END.
That Now Transcends BEYOND Her Death .......

I LOVE You STILL Mum Because Your Love STILL RUNS ...
Right Through My Veins And KEEPS Me ... SANE ...

Even Though Your Body's .................................... Gone .........................
Your Love For ME ... STILL KEEPS Me STRONG ... !!!!!!!

NOW THAT's LOVE To Me ... !!!

... UNCONDITIONAL LOVE ... !!!!

But What About YOU ... ?
Does Love Consume The Air You Breathe ... ?
Or Play A Tune To A DIFFERENT Theme ... ???

For Some It Seems Some NEW Nikes ...
Or A Diamond Ring That Blings' And BLINGS ... !!!!!
Is The Kind of STUFF They ... CHOOSE To LOVE ... ?!?

Or A NICE Sports Car With A Home That's ... LARGE ... !!!
Where LOVE Gets SCARRED When Things Get HARD ... !!!!!!!

But Who Am I To Say That's NOT Okay ... !?!
Love Can Be DISPLAYED In MANY Ways ... !!!!!

Well Love To ME FILLS Empty Plates ... !!!!!
And Does NOT Feed Off EXPENSIVE Tastes ... !!!!!!

Love DON'T WATCH Face ... !!
Or ... Colour Or Race ...

Love Finds NO PLACE ...
To ....... Sep - ar - at - e .........

Because of .... HATE .... !!!

Love ELEVATES And Infiltrates ...
A Place In Hearts So That Hate ....................................................... DEPARTS ... !!!!!!

But LOVE Can HURT ... !!!
When Love FILLS URNS Or FILLS A HEARSE ... !!!

Because THAT Love Is For Someone ...
Whose Time Has Come To FACE QUESTIONS ...

Questions Like ....

.... "Son, what have you done, within your life
.... to earn a shrine up in the sky ?
.... Have you done enough, to not get dumped,
.... in the devils' home, where evil roams ?"

There's Love There TOO DON'T You Be FOOLED ... !!!

In Hell Love Still UNSETTLES ....
The HORNIEST of DEVILS Leaving Them ... DISHEVELLED ... !!!!!!

And Then Makes Graves For Hate To Lay ...
And FADE AWAY From Dormant Brains ...
It's NEVER TOO LATE For Love To AWAKE ...
A Body And Soul That Is ... HATE Controlled ... !!!!!

So What Would Love Say To Hate ....
If They Had A Debate ... ?!?

.... "I understand you nurture war,
.... so, exactly what cause are wars good for ?"

... "Well they're good for......."

...."Whoa, hold on there bro, that question was a rhetorical one,
.... i'm the oracle son ! Wars like you are clearly dumb,
.... and lead to news that leaves mums numb,
.... when they have lost, daughters and sons !
.... That's quite a cost for war actions !
.... I seek PEACE and UNITY, better scenes than blood on streets,
.... I AM BEAUTY, DON'T YOU SEE !?!"

See Love DEFINES Those Happy Times ...
And Has NO PRICE or Things That SHINE ... !!!

While HATE And WAR As I Said Before ...
Costs SO MUCH More Than Securing Shores ...
When Souls Are Mourned For A BOGUS Cause ... !!!!!

Soldiers SHOW LOVE When Shooting GUNS ... ?!?
MISGUIDED Love ... From Those ABOVE ....

Whose LOVE For POWER Makes Them DEVOUR ...
ANY Currency To FEED Their GREED Like Count Dracs' Breed ... !!!

What Part of LOVE Says SPILL SOME BLOOD ... ?!?
Or Learn To KILL For ... DOLLAR BILLS ... ???

Love NEEDS NO PAY To ELEVATE .....
The Minds of Brains From Mental PAIN .... !!!

A Smile And A Joke Can Help Folk Cope ...
To Deal With STRESS And IGNORANCE ... !!!

FORGIVENESS ... And Love DEFLECTS .....
THOSE ... POISONED Darts .... !!!
Aimed At The Hearts of LOVE FILLED WILLS ... !!!
Who'd Rather CHILL Than Get Caught Up In Stuff That's DUMB ... !!!!

Like Pulling GUNS To Prove You're TOUGH ... ?!?
LOVE Can Be ROUGH And Be ... MESSED UP ... !!!!!!

But SHOULD NOT Lead To HATE-FILLED Deeds ... !!!!!

You See LOVE .... Concedes And Walks AWAY .................................................................­...
So That It Can ......................... B R E A T H E........................... ! ! !

And Find A Way To RISE AGAIN ...
And DISMISS ........................................................ Pain ............ !!!!!!

Love SUPERSEDES Petty Jealousies ...
And QUICKLY Denies The Use of LIES ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love IS DEEP ... Love IS ME ..... !!!!!
Love IS YOU .... Love IS COOL ... !!!!!
Love CAN Move And Love CAN SOOTHE ... !!!

And MOST of ALL Love Is THE TRUTH ... !!!!!

I Guess That's Why I Write These Rhymes ...
To Prove That There Is LOVE In ... ALL OF US .... !!!!!!

These Words Have Come From UP ABOVE .... !!!

So I Now Give Them To You ... With THIS ....

MY ...... " LOVE " .......
