I am tired of this work
that they call “Love”,
this is not the Love
that I choose.

I refuse to believe
that Love must be hard
or threaten me
with all I could lose.

I choose Love
that helps me remember
the power that exists
deep within.

I choose Love
that doesn’t require
one of us to fail
for the other to win.

My heart is open
to the possibility
that an “either or”
need not apply.

So I can be devoted
while also be free.
It’s not a choice between
the Earth and the Sky.

That is the Love
I choose to create,
a Love that is
free from disguise.

I reject any Love
that I must “fall for”,
and replace it with
a Love where I must Rise.

Thank you.
I love you.
Please, #rememberwhoyouare
