they would have as love what is not love

that which cares more for what one is

than cares for what one could be

it is not love that takes one as they are

and asks them not to change

but carelessness

that locks one into what one is

and throws away the key


true love cares for what one may become

given the chance to experience truth

holding all doors open save those that lead to death

relentless proclaiming Life till death has sealed life's choice


They would have as Love what is not Love
