What Is Love? (Poetry In Motion)

"What is Love?"
(Is a question I once asked)
"Is it a gift from above?
Is it an action or a task?

Can you enlighten my mind,
To this strange emotion?
That makes cold hearts kind
And full of devotion

To the significant other
Whom you deeply admire
And try not to smother
With your passionate desire

Some say love isn't real
That's it's all just in your head
But if that's truly the deal
Then one is better off dead

For the mind is very fickle
Despite it's thirst for knowledge
It's worth is about a Nickle
After one finishes college

Love is not an action
For all actions have an end
And lack the satisfaction
Of a trust worthy friend

Love is not an emotion
For emotions are irrelevant
Ever changing with commotion
Going from wrath to benevolent

What is love? Can you tell me?
Can you find its definiton?"
This question I asked Amy
Who provided this explanation

"Love is kind, love is strong,
And provides no tally of wrongs
It's forgiving and accepting
And it's never, ever rejecting

Full of grace and full of mercy
But it's also willing to hurt thee
To bring truth into your ears
Despite the future tears

It foolishly places it's trust
And is willing to go bust
By revealing it's greatest secret
Believing that you will keep it

Love is constant, it won't fade
For it's ultimately made
To last beyond a million days
Love is Forever and Always!"

I still asked more questions
But her answers remained the same
And despite my best intentions
I started to like this dame

And thus began the story
About Darnell and Amy
Two souls seeking out a journey
Together--for the rest of eternity.

See You In 24 Hours

When did life ever get so busy? Between tweeting, friendfeeding, texting, facebooking, blogging &YouTubing, I've found that living in the era of life streaming (which for you non-geeks means posting frquent updates about life online) to become a bit overwhelming.

While a large part of this is due to my iPhone (which makes is easy to tweet, Friendfeed, etc. more often), much of the blame rests with me and my desire to digitalize my life in cyber space for future generations to explore over.

So for the next 24 plus hours I'm going to tune out all social networks and refrain from texting.

Yes, even texting her.

This includes email as well (and I'm turning off push updates so my iPhone won't alert me of the 100 plus messages that come through daily).

What will I do in the meantime? I'll probably read a book or three (as I have dozens on my iPhone that are feeling neglected) or even go see a movie tomorrow (G-force, Harry Potter or the horrendous GI Joe).

So until Sunday, good night all! And don't forget to get some exercise in the sunshine or catch a flick at the movie theatre).
