I Have Love
Futile dreams and frustrated hopes.
That's the story of our lives.
We push on after devastation,
proud of our resilience,
looking for luck,
disbelieving love anymore.
My soul is sapped of energy
and sapped of life.
Let's tally up our losses.
Others will not help me who are struggling themselves.
Love is full of energy.
We may not have found it sustaining.
We want love more concrete than spiritual.
When we have to give up,
we leave our love for others to try.
Acting with passion and persistence
may also have led to our destruction.
We should take all this defeat well.
We started with love.
What have we gone through all this trouble for,
only to watch children grow up,
and die in violence and war?
I have love.
And now,
the answer is too spiritual to enjoy.
