Love Richness

Love is not a game

it is a business,

where wedding rings

are worth more than kisses;

and Valentine’s Day

is an excuse to spend hundreds

to express our feigned devotion

instead of engaging in conversation

and fulfilling promises.

We fall in love for all the wrong reasons

and we reiterate three words

forgetting their value.

Victims of a generation

lost in a masquerade;

For when love is true,

we are too afraid.

I am an aspiring investigative journalist with a single dream: to save the world. It may seem impossible, but I believe knowledge promotes tolerance, and tolerance breeds empathy, kindness, and compassion. Love is the cure for Earth's cancer.
