Love, Above All Else

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R._N._Taber

Good or bad, we make the world we live in and it is up to all of us to try and make it a better one.

Humanity's rage to live for love and the greater good will always defeat its enemies in the end,

Did I say it would be easy? 

This poem is a villanelle.

LOVE, ABOVE ALL ELSE

Though bigotry and hate thrive 
among the world’s power brokers,
it’s love alone that will survive

Always, people willing to drive
forces for good to the aid of others
though bigotry and hate thrive

Though a terrorist ethic connive
to mock this world’s peace makers,
it's love alone that will survive

Open heart and mind ever contrive
to expose the worst attention seekers
though bigotry and hate thrive

If life-giving forces as bees to hive,
a warning sting for bare-faced takers,
it’s love alone that will survive

Sure to keep Freedom's name alive,
frustrate its would-be code breakers;
though bigotry and hate thrive
it’s love alone that will survive
