Selfless Love Leaves a Beauty Mark

Slander and gossip is all around

What is new?

We rise to fall down 

We deserve it after all

My ear is itching 

In my chair I am twitching 

Are you talking about me too?


I am the talk of the town

You know it’s true

The billboard with a picture of a clown 

The jester who is about to fall

Looking for peace is only wishing 

My ripped paper heart needs stitching 

I don’t want to hear, “I love you”


I take a road trip for a fresh breath of air

The journey frees my soul

Once I let go I don’t care

My spirit is my only hope

This world lost it’s spark

And left me in the dark

It’s time for me to take control


Selfless love is genuine and fair

But the opposite leaves a hole

But selfless love can take you anywhere 

It will nurture and help you cope

Here my spirit can just park

As it leaves a beauty mark

And the rhythm of love remains full
