Valentine’s Reflection

Love is understanding

that feelings are temporary.

A tendency to tell you sweet

things constantly.

It’s a temptation I fight daily.

I’ve had a habit of holding hearts hostage.

Thinking that bondage was how we bonded.

But once I lost the captives, my. capacity for love dropped again.

Love is looking at your reflection and not facing your rival.

It’s breaking bread with your brothers and supporting you sisters.

It’s having faith in the unseen and

trusting in the face of adversity.

We all deserve compassion.

So let’s pursue it passionately.
