Hope is Remembering Who We Are

WHAT IS LOVE?

not a command
though it might feel that way
an exhortation from on high
what the gods demand

not a gift
though it might feel that way
an offering of friendship
when spirit is low

not an ideal
though it might feel that way
an impossible standard
where madness reigns

not a commodity
though it might feel that way
a promise bought and sold
why hearts are starving

not a what
though it might feel that way
as we struggle to remember
who we are
