What is Love?

What is love, is it free for everyone

Or is it ethereal and abhored

What is love, is it a birthright ignored

Or is it a gift granted by the Son


Most can find this answer in their loved ones

Others seek the Lord to find this reward

These fortunate many have faith restored

While the dun are stunned when faced with guns


What is love, it must not be for all hues

How could it be when all eyez are on me

Makaveli did warn all of Thug Life


But this is abuse that won’t be excused

To agree love must change will be they key

For all to live in blithe and not in strife
