Allow Yourself to Love (Reprise)

Allow yourself to love, in spite of all
The predators surrounding you — reach out
Though lowered self esteem hold you in thrall
Though your true motivation others doubt

Don’t let them tell you it does not exist
Disinterested love is all around
Heed not their claim that in the mud we’re fixed
Just yonder we may walk on solid ground

Through stout resistance rising everywhere
Persist in the opening of your heart
Extend the flag of peace, decide to care
Be of this human family a part

Though careless of this founding truth have grown
We stand together or we fall alone

A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet

Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land

Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap

Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak
