Sparse and Scattered: Preserving the Precious

The Magical Power and Gift of Unconditional Love: Genuine Authenticity and Tenderness

By Jessica C.Published about a year ago 3 min read

Genuine and unconditional, so precious and rare

Like a diamond found in the depths of despair

In a world full of lies and pretend

So many struggle and drown in the deep end

Grinding and slaving away on the daily

Trying to fill a void to ease the pain greatly

Masks abound, conversation full of empty pleasantries

Modern society is mere dull mediocrities

Suffocating, smothering, and stifling our growth

Invisible barriers block our every hope

Lives where only struggle can be found

A distant dream of a life most profound

As walls build up and hearts grow cold

The power of love goes often untold

We fail to see the beauty in compassion and grace

While allowing egos to call the shots and the pace

Play pretend, fake it, never reveal

Not a word on how you actually feel

Hold back, plaster on a smile, stay in line

It's only leading to our deep decline

But hidden and tucked away in minds, hearts of gold

The beauty of unconditional love can unfold

It's a mighty force that can bring down any wall

A power that doesn't judge, letting us all stand tall

It carries us through life's struggles, no matter how thick

It's a beacon of hope, a flame that won't flicker or trick

The heart that loves without condition or bounds

Never succumbs to the darkness that surrounds

Open your heart, and embrace authenticity

Acceptance and love will grant you serenity

Be true to yourself, never settle for less

Unconditional love will never fail to impress

When darkness looms wherever we roam

Unconditional love is there to bring us home

It's a precious thing we hold dear

To help us stay the course every year

No matter what life throws, no matter the test

Unconditional love will keep you at your best

It shines a light on our soul

To aid when we feel out of control

Few people truly know this feeling

It's a treasure that encompasses the deepest healing

The world would be a better place if we all could know

Just how precious love is and allow it to grow

So, in a lost world full of pain and confusion

Unconditional love is the only conclusion

It's a gift and what it truly means to be alive

And a loving world is a goal we should strive

In a society where we feel so alone

Unconditional love would change everything if only shown

Written off in disbelief, like unicorns, "such things don’t exist"

But the power of love will still persist

It's time to be authentic, sincere, and real

To show the world a love that can heal

Unconditional and pure, it's something to share

Let go of our masks and allow ourselves to care

So, reach out your heart and extend your hand

Let the power of love in and understand

Unconditional love is the gift that we all need

For our lives to flourish, for us to finally succeed
