Poems about Love and hate: “It’s simple” by M. Linda Steffey



A Spiritual And Inspirational Poem from All-Creatures.org

Spiritual and Inspirational poetry that touch the heart and soul, and provoke the mind.


O Lord, my prayer is simple
It’s not so hard to say
But for man to do it
Has taken ever and a day…

To LOVE.. for me is simple
You just THINK it in your head
And it just comes out your mouth
In everything that’s said!

Just THINK LOVE right up here
In your old hard head..
And it travels to your HEART
And the rest of you is led…

In travels down your arms
From THINKING LOVE in your brain
And your arms hug your brother
And keeps the world sane!

THINKING LOVE in your mind
Is the place it has to start…
‘Cause if you don’t THINK it first
It won’t ever reach your heart!

Our mind is very vital
As to if we LOVE or HATE
For it governs our heart
Our destiny, our fate!

If your poor mind is idle
If you want a life of PEACE
THINK LOVE in your mind
HATE in your world will cease….
