For Love

For Love


The earth will turn
Long after our discrimination has passed
We can only be remembered
By love
And by those that loved us
The black and white soldiers
Stand in order
A progression of names
Flowers placed
For love lost
There will be a silence
That will deafen the smallest ears
This earth
Was made for love.

Beautiful and very true.  Love is all we have in the end.  No one wants to tell someone they hate them on their death bed, they want to say they love them.  Without love there is nothing.

This is very nice. 
No matter how much I hate to admit it, love is probably pretty wonderful.  We all need it in some form.
Great poem.
Btw, thanks for reading and commenting mine :]

In my book...This is what being "human" is all about.

Great job!

Can I just say this...helllll yes! Oh this was just a FINE piece of work John, and it has to go to favs. This earth WAS made for it in a relationship, friendship..just something as simple as being kind is an act of love. Never enough of it IMO, but I always figure it has to start here first...beautiful work, thankful to have stopped by.

So very true John and it will still be turning long after we cease to exist, thats if theres anything left to turn of course.

A very concise and well written piece of prose.  It's often said that love makes the world go 'round...and it's true.


I enjoyed the style that you used and the parallelism in the metaphors.  It made this a very enjoyable read.

Nice one John. It can only be love, but somewhere along the line, humankind have forgotten the meaning of the word. Joe

So very right John. Love is how we are connected and stay when our bodies are buried. We are only remembered if we are loved.

Amen, John...Love is the only thing that makes the rest of life worth bothering with...len

So true, I am doing a unit on discrimination, and this poem totally blows me away. Here is the answer to the whole world. So well written.
