Arts.Advocacy+Wellness: "Love is..."

“…a combination of care, knowledge, responsibility, respect, trust, commitment.”
-bell hooks

Love is….

Love is…

Self, within, one,
A mystery, unknown, hidden.
What one makes of it

Or how one defines it for self.

Love is peaceful. Not oppressive.


Is it just a word that we place too much attachment to?

Is it a feeling that we give too much power?

Is it a chase for a feeling so close but so far away from us…like a dog chasing his tail

That he’ll never capture?

Love is...complex.

Love is all these things

That’s why we love and never give up on love

The constant search, renewing, redefining…

Love is…

“Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.”
-James Baldwin

…love does not bring an end to difficulties, it gives us the strength to cope with difficulties in a constructive way…”
-bell hooks

And what is Love for you?
