Simple minds open your eyes…
possessive love is an invention
created by the people’s nation
to make you crave meaningless validation.
Seeking peace in others because you can’t find yourself
depending on them for your spiritual health
just to be destroyed
because your worth lies
in their ego-stroking wealth
the key to your internal demise.
Imperfect creatures with lustful desires
who can’t see past the surface features
when everything crashes and emotions burn
you blame everyone else finding something to spurn
denying yourself the lesson to learn.
Love is non-restrictive
it knows no bounds
but you can’t comprehend that it isn’t a game
it’s universally aligned and easy to find
when you seek out the spirit
in the face it lies behind.
Aesthetically pleasing to the eye
is more a concern than the person inside
Or finding someone who you think you can fix
because on the inside you’re broken and can’t come to grips
with the fact that you’re losing yourself in their tricks.
You claim that the ultimate prize
is finding one person to stand by your side
but the reality is
when you look much deeper
you’ll discover that no one’s a keeper
if they can’t see past your external youth
through the eyes to the soul where lies the beautiful truth.
