{ 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

Waves

Trials and

Storms

And love will be there forever.

 

Love gets

Wrinkled

Burned and

Scarred

 

But love is too busy

Doing

Working and

Praying

To look into the mirror
