Make Love, Now War – Poem

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

This is a song, we have all heard it and for me it is a song that resonates into my soul in a way I just can’t find words for, nor explain. I love music for many reasons. Music is the only true universal tool we have as a species that we can all share, music is the most powerful form of expression on this blue globe. Sometimes we all listen to a song and love it, but we don’t fully acknowledge the lyrics and the message they tell. I changed the lyrics of this song to a poem and by doing so I think it captures the song in a different light. As I said we all love music. I love Avicii, but I can listen to this music also. I guess we all listen to different music dependent on our mood in a moment. Spend time reading the lyrics of a song, strip it bare and truly understand the message. I cry a lot when I hear “What can I do to change the World” Here is some advice, don’t try to change the World, just change your World, give it a try, please, humanity needs you

More love, less hate

When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well, there’s so much they hold

And just like them old stars
I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

Well, I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

And when you’re needing your space
To do some navigating
I’ll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

‘Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We’ve got a lot to learn
God knows we’re worth it
No, I won’t give up

I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake

And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not, and who I am

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up, still looking up.

Well, I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up
