Love

It simply is impossible and simply is absurd -
to think that love can be defined in ordinary word.
"For God so loved the world..." and too, He had amid -
the evil forces on the earth who tortured as they did.
To love someone who helped you is a simple thing to do -
but try to love the people who have great disdain for you.
Then let them whip you- up until the pain is so intense -
it makes one wonder, if in fact, you have no common sense.
And let them make you drag a big old heavy wooden cross -
until you're so exhausted [that the path] you fall across.
And let them nail you to the beams in most horrendous way -
then mock you as you hear each word the soldiers have to say.
And let them place a homemade crown of nothing but pure scorn
that seize your brow, while poking in, with long and piercing thorn.
And let them hang you there alone in pain and agony
for all the people gathered 'round- for all of them to see.
And let them have their evil way until the bitter end -
until you finally pass away for all who ever sinned.
It simply is impossible and simply is absurd -
to think that love can be defined in ordinary word.
