From dark to light to love

From dark to light to love

A Poem by Penny Dreadful

I do not love, I lust.
To love I must care.
To care I must listen.
To listen I must be open.
To be open I need your trust.
To gain your trust I must be faithful.
To be faithful I must be disciplined.
To be disciplined I need support.
To have your support I must be honest.
To be honest I must be aware.
To be aware I must know my own weaknesses.
To know my weakness I must first see my own failure.
To see failure I must find my limits.
To find limits I must seek the unknown.
In seeking the unknown I must have help.
To give help, you must first care.
Once you care, you can learn to love.

Intriguing unfoldment. Reminds me of progressive psychologist R.D. Laing's Knots, a rigorous inquiry into onion layers of the psyche.

Not only are your concise lines effective, it triggers an interest in applying comparable steps of awareness to any concern.

Good work.
