Love is not

Love is not endlessly tolerating

Those that berate criticize and demean
Is not endlessly putting up with ridicule
Is not always coming away feeling unclean

Sometimes fire is necessary
To take it all back down to the source
Sometimes lightning and thunder
Are part of walking a courageous course

You do not have to lose control
To put an end to degradation and shame
You may have to risk and take a chance
You may have to with faith face the pain

Stand up for yourself stand up for truth
Stand up for those for whom you deeply care
Draw the line say it straight out
Sometimes we are only as free as we dare

Unspoken Triangulation

Not losing isn't winning
Not getting caught isn't innocent
And just because you smile when you say it
Doesn't mean best wishes are being sent

Ignoring results doesn't mean
That they are not there
And isn't it odd how cold shoulders
Are often kin to hot air

And what kind of witness is it
That buries their heads or closes their eyes
And then wants to say they saw the truth
Because they did not see the telling of lies
