It’s Still All About Love and Some Other STUFF

by Terry Ann Williams-Richard

Here’s the audio:

It’s still all about love
We all want to be loved
Even when we do not act in a loving
manner
Even as the tears are shed
And the stinging words
Are said
As we wait by the phone
Longing to hear a ring
Hoping the voice on the other end will sing
Sing and chime notes of goodness

It’s still all about love
And some other stuff
Even as the sexes battle
And the hormones rage
The money earned
Bills paid and unpaid
Babies crying
Friends and family dying
Dinner ready
Can’t seem to rock steady
We all want to be loved still

Hoping and praying
Believing that we know what
God is saying
Not hearing what He has been whispering
Not sensing what echoes
Not seeing what’s more than obvious
Or at least it should be
Desperation is the mask
Deception
Doubt
Destruction
Hate-where is the love
We must all be brought to task

It’s still all about love
and some other stuff
Other stuff that we step into
Walk in
(Did I say step in?)
Beg for-lie for
Die for-sell out for
Settle for and call love
The other stuff
Which we say
Will do
Must do
We just gotta do
The other stuff
That disappears

It’s still all about love
And some other stuff
Feeling? Choice? Decision? Work? Effort?
Openness and willingness
God help us
God show us
God love us
He does already
He already does
