The word LOVE flys freely as a bird.
The word LOVE isn't given the respect it deserves.
Why shall we find it okay to remain confused, between LOVE and Lust, LOVE and Fascination.
Then theres those loved ones that abuse the word.
LOVE is not acceptance.
Do we accept the wrong of a person because we are blinded by LOVE?
Or maybe it is tolerance.
We are tolerable to wrong and blind to what is right.
All because if a four letter word.
Maybe the expansion of vocabulary would be the solution.
Hopefully put an end to the sincere confusion.

This poem was created to bring awareness to the overly used word of 'love'. The value and sentimental aspect of this word is slowly being stripped away.

words are what one makes of it and its meaning

make certain that they are sincere, but also know that action speaks louder than words
