Just Love

Red eyes filled with passion more than hate
We breathe in dangerous yet tenderly beautiful times

Burn bridges as some are never meant to be crossed again
We step up with the leadership of vulnerability

Words of truth written inside our hearts are all that matter
We carve our destiny with swords of bravery in action

Loving minds disrupt the squalor of abuse
We have the courage to fly high in the fear of unpopularity

Golden reward is the mantle of being anonymous
With fame there is pressure to be more than who we are

Failure is not a death but a rebirth into new possibility
We dream large, love big for our breath is not meant to reduce
but to imprint love on all that we dare touch

Dance to release our tears, dance to sweat our prayers
We dance to feel our truth swell into subtle sensuality

Sing to celebrate that even in invisibility
We have nobility as our heart grows bigger with every survival

Freedom lies in living in the spaces between the faces
We have honour dwelling on the fringe and
watching is the genius of every loner

Nourish and nurture our own hearts
We have abundance to hold hands in the universe of colour
in the odyssey of our heartbeat

And greatness lies not in being seen
but in seeing and being and loving and that is enough

Above all love, just love
