Do each of you realize that you are sacred, that
every creation in the Cosmos is sacred? Why
have all who have ever lived not come to the
realization that all are sacred? The Supreme Being
imbued each with sacredness. It is your inviolate
worth, not the money you make, not the job you have,
not the title you hold, not the house you live in, not
the car you drive. Turn inward to realize these truths,
then embrace them. That's when you will become truth
personified, and your epiphany will be that you share
it with all else. You will come intuitively, inescapably,
to feel, to know, in your heart and soul, that love
is the offspring of knowing you are sacred.

Because the above is true, you would love
yourself, and love would be your response to all
situations. And when you give love, you beget love,
so, in time, the world would become a place of loving.
No more hurtful, lethal acts. No more harm, only
harmony. Love would be Earth's modus operandi.
This is how you make love.

I’m blinded by the dark of my fears,
searching for the key to your heart.

Couple of mistakes I’ve made.
Couple of ****** I’ve bade.
Couple of wrongs I’ve said.
I guess my bed was made.

You can wear the rubber.
And take it to the dumper.
But she has feelings too.
You can’t put protection on her heart.
Now I realize.

Do I love you?
I want you, don’t I?
Do I love you?
I’m willing to try.
