Corinthians 31


Love is impatient.
Impatient as hunger and thirst;
Impatient as the moon in the last moments before dusk falls;
For love knows no time and place but the here and the now.

Love is cruel.
Cruel as death which cares not for the prayers of any man;
Cruel as the rain which falls without thought of who gets caught under;
For love knows no time and place but the here and the now

Love is jealous.
Jealous as the elderly watching the vigour of the youth;
Jealous as the youth craving the freedom of their elder;
For love knows no time and place but the here and the now

Love is proud.
Proud as mothers cradling their newly born children;
Proud as peacocks with their coloured fans and heads held high;
For love knows no time and place but the here and the now.

Love is rude
Rude as chance who spoils the most elegant of plans;
Rude as the rays of light penetrating those heavy eyelids in the morn;
For love knows no time and place but the here and the now.

Love is selfish,
Selfish as the sun who blocks off light from all other stars during the day;
Selfish as weeds choking the life from all other plants nearby;
For love knows no time and place but the here and the now.

Love is quick-tempered.
Quick as a flash of lightning breaking the serene horizon of the city skyline;
Quick as the rush of water gushing forth from a broken dam;
For love knows no time and place but the here and the now.

Love broods over injury.
Its wounds leave the most glorious of scars and these scars distort the otherwise flawless skin;
What was perfect remains so in imperfection;
For love knows no time and place but the here and the now

And yet
It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things
