Only Love

About this poem:

A poem Teal wrote about integration, which is realized through love, being the only way to end the war between good and evil.

War we cried

As if it were not of mankind’s own making.

The soul of man,

The synagogue of that most violent of battles;

Between good and evil.

Centuries of bloodshed in between those rivals.

Shall I pray that as the blood falls to Earth

It will end that war?

No messiah yet has managed it.

It rages on

The very sound of it

Is blasphemy

Blasphemy against the sanctuary of the human heart.

Neither side recognizing a trace of itself in the other.

Neither side lifting a white flag against the silence of the sky.

Only love can bring the silence of union

To this riot of parting between God’s children.

Only love

Only love

And Love, the only antidote

Excludes nothing,

Including evil.

Beyond the fail mortality

Of polarity,

It calls these two brothers back together as one.

Christ- the choice

Lucifer- the lack of choice…

To love

They called him the bearer of the light,

For without him

There could be no Christ.

Without determinism

We could not know the freedom of will;

Nor taste its sweetness

In the volition of our autonomy.

Each side calls for each other’s death.

But there will be no elegy.

There will be no elegy because one cannot die without the other.

One cannot live without the other.

Only love can quiet

Both the fervor of the devil’s tongue

And the fervor of the angel’s wing.

Only love

Only love

And love, the only antidote

Excludes nothing,

Including evil.

Only love will end this war.
