Seeking Love

Amazing Grace, our poet ocelot, is providing provocative thought as she shares with us another original poem from her heart.


My head bowed, I ask a simple question only of you,
Why seek love when barriers you first need to remove?
Not feeling the love as it tries to get through
Pain is the emotion you have grown accustomed to.

The past you have held onto for many a year
Has built a wall separating what you hold dear.
Seeing events as good and bad
Has created the illusion of things you could have had.

Let go of what you think might have been
And allow your heart to feel before your head can win.
The barriers dissolved and can be no more
You discover love has always been there at the being of your core.
