‘True Love Within You’

‘True Love Within You’

A Poem by ‘Thoughts In Time’🌹
"

The truth will set you free and when you are free you are free indeed🌹

‘True Love Within You’

There’s so many things to be grateful for

It just takes a matter of time
To see the beauty that
Surrounds you and settles
An unrested mind

Just look a little and you
Will see the beauty before
You
Set out there
For you and me -

For everywhere you look
In every cranny corner
Or hook
There’s a simple smile
A shining star
A grateful heart
A bird that sings
A flower in bloom
A song -

Reminding us of where we
Belong

It takes just one hurtful word
A gesture cold and quite
Absurd
To break a heart
To tear apart
A soul so special
Pure and true

Because of selfishness
That lies within you

Why live a lie
Life is short
It cannot be bought

So don’t get caught
In the mis-use
Of innocent thought
It demands all costs
It strips it steals
Removes what’s real-

So search your soul
And inside you will
Discover
That there -
Love happiness and freedom
Is part if the reason
We are here-

To share and show
For another day
For love to grow-

Don’t doubt the power
Of uplifting another
For in your kindness
You shall find that a weary
Mind
Needs only love and laughter
Its what’s been sought after-
So extend a hand
Open the door to another land -
Where kindness
Love
Joy

Will abide forevermore
If you just show a lost soul
The way to go

Forget what life dictates
And live true to the internal
You
That’s all that one must do
To see true love shine through-

You don’t need to break others
To be true to you-

Just love yourself
And let the true love
Shine through

A love to share
Between two
Me and
You.

This is the most well-balanced piece of inspirational writing I've read in a long time. I love that you address our dark tendencies, as well as urging us toward a lighter way of being. You do this without condemnation, but gently. I believe that when we fight the darkness, it gets more ferocious. The way to change one's perspective is to acknowledge the darkness, but focus on the light. This feels like how your approach is in this poem. There's a solid undercurrent of caring & loving intent to your words (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

An optimistic take on life. Nicely penned.

'You shall find that a weary - Mind - Needs only love and laughter - Its what’s been sought after- So extend a hand - Open the door to another land - Where kindness - Love - Joy .. .. Will abide forevermore - If you just show a lost soul - The way to go .. '

EVERY word should have been written to and for you because they're a tribute to the deeply thinking person you are: a beautiful guileless being. Words like that/this are part of the whole, not drawn from a well. I aim for the essence of what you've laid, knowing I'll never achieve it but can only try. Meantime without demanding you have asked me, others, all, to reach for.. ..

Wonderful writing. Thank you - for everything.

This is, indeed, an uplifting meditative poem of love, hope, truth, sincerity, encouragement, a treatise on harmonious coexistence, starting with the self. For it is in truly loving and appreciating yourself that you can truly love and appreciate others.

Within this wonderful poem there is a piece of wisdom that'll benefit anybody coming across your wonderful words.

'...don't doubt the power
of uplifting another!'

Well done!!!

The sentiment expressed in your lines Kelly is truly delightful. Now if everyone thought that way, what a wonderful world we would live in. Very nicely expressed.

i just read "Foible" by Mrudula Rani .. a senryu about judging others ... a perfect compliment to your "True Love Within You" ..we get so busy with all the "stuff" of living .. work, pay the bills, have a nasty boss or co-worker etc etc ... your poem lifts us up from that in the most simple way ... give a smile to someone else .. appreciate the air we are breathing, the glory and mystery within all creation ... our selfishness is a crippler isn't it!? glad i did not miss this Ms. Thoughts! :)

Most people have love near. Learn too late to be happy for the kind gifts. Love is easy to give but most people want everything. Sometimes, you can't have everything. Maybe a taste and the possibilities of more. Wonderful poetry shared dear Kelly.

You are welcome dear Kelly.
From your first line you weave a world with possibility. There is beauty all around us, there are things to be grateful for down every path. It seems so easy to choose to see only the anger, the hate, the sorrow... yet... when we let the love within us grow, what we see is transformed. Yes, there is joy, and hope, and love in abundance... beautiful words!
