To Know Not Else But Love | Poem


To Know Not Else But Love

in the eyes of the new born babe
is the cross of choosing
energy to balance not create
innocent then we are born

hell is what we create for others
but have to live ourselves
we do die for our own sins
as day dies to night

revenge does not come with pain it comes with love
what it is we love comes with pain
loss sorrow joy bliss
and we are of this circle
know not else but love
