if we should love. |an OJ ode|

if we should love.

let it be for the ages
even though time traps us into
a tiny space on the continuum
lets love like forever is our reality

if we should love.

Let us do it with a holding of hands
a smiling of smiles
and a lot of great sex

if we should love.

Let us yell it from the rooftops
letting the world see
what possibility looks like
when she grows her wings

if we should love.

Let us do it
never ceasing
never believing that
any other way is an option

if we should love.

let us hold the stars between our palms
praying we never forget

if we should love.

Let us do it every single moment
for as long as we can
what matters most is us

…and if we should love
Let us love against all evens
and know that revolution
is a matter of the heart

our world changes
with the sync
of our heart beat…
if we.
should love.

  1. “Let us love against all evens
    and know that revolution
    is a matter of the heart”
    incredible. I can hear you performing this.
    its so real, so unpretentious.
