The Beauty of Life ~ Meno Lopes

~ As a child,
I was one with life,
joy was abundant,
but painful things came,
darkness started a journey
to try to fill me,
All I ever wanted was just to love.

As I grew,
others were hurtful,
the system was cold,
All I ever wanted was just to love.

As a young adult,
corporations and companies ruled
over me,
wanting only to take and take and
take more,
only to receive their less,
All I ever wanted was just to love.

As a creator of new life,
much happiness came,
soon to be followed by
hurt, judgment, more coldness,
torn into many pieces,
All I ever wanted was just to love.

And through all this,
the world, the universe, nature was
always there,
waiting for me in the background,
and I ignored her.

When I finally turned to her,
and embraced her back as one,
she turned and said to me,
“All I ever wanted was just to love you” ~
