{ Who Said Love Is Pretty?}

Who said love is pretty?

Love is not a fragile flower

Or a delicate blossom

Love is a stubborn weed that refuses to be uprooted.


Love is not a silky, elegant fabric

It’s a stained and sturdy tarp

A rough and lowly burlap


Love is a rusty anchor

A moss-covered boulder

A weatherbeaten barn.


Love has been through


Trials and


And love will be there forever.


Love gets


Burned and



But love is too busy


Working and


To look into the mirror
