Believe in Love

Throughout our lives

we dream of love.

One that is pure

fulfilling

eternal.

We search

for that one person

who will fill our souls

with peace

joy

completeness.

Some of us find that love.

Build our lives around it,

full of happiness

comfort

serenity.

Some search forever.

Seeking that one who will

fill the void in their heart

that aches with loneliness

anger

dispair.

Never realizing that in order

to love another,

you must first learn

to love yourself.

You must be brave

strong

accepting

to the possibility that

pain is a part

of love.

Love is there

if you only open yourself

to the idea

even though it is not

perfect,

it is real,

and it is yours for the taking

if you only

believe.
