The exception

Posted by Simon Parke, 26 April 2019, 3.59pm

They can take everything from us.

They can smash our doors, break our windows and take what they want.

They can use our bodies - cut, break or rape.

They can possess our minds with a few well-chosen drugs.

They can use slogans and lies to gain power over us.

They can take everything by force, by cleverness, by smiling deceit, by pressure applied.

Except our love, of course.

No one can take that.

Not even God.

Love, we have to give.

And we give it carefully.

And sometimes we give it wonderfully.
