A world in need

Love they say is a feeling
But i believe its a state of being
A place where what needs to be said is said
Where all our tears and fears are shed
Who in this world can understand love
I guess no one can, because its a concept from above
Teachers, philosophers, Scholars, all have tried to explain
Their words managed only, to give a glimpse of what love entails
Love sees beyond background, color, and creed
It is a beautiful flower that grows from a tiny sown seed
Love calms the storms of life
It is to our souls what a good husband is to his wife
Love i believe is the solution to all the world's ills
It is a miraculous cure that does not come in pills
It is unfortunate.....our world bleeds
Love!!!!! is all our world needs

Love as a state of being

You embody love in the words of this poem. I am looking at your photo peering at eyes filled with a warmth and soul. Thanks for sharing this poem with its expanse of love.

I am in the middle of a novel set in Nigeria in the 1960s/70s called Half of a Yellow Sun about the civil war and the Biafara separatist movement. Being a part of WP and corresponding with women around the globe opens my mind and heart to an intense curiosity- wanting to know the stories of Nigeria's history. Tell me other books I must read about Nigeria- clearly you are a deep lover of words.

Thanks for the recommendations

I have never read Chinua Achebe, but have heard about him many times. I don't know Wole Shoyinka and Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida- thank you- now I just need the time to read, read, read.
