Poetry: Infinite Love

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

She seeks after more

More beauty,  more attention, more fame

Anything for people to look her way.

 

She strives chasing the wind

For something that can never

Be bought, gained or achieved.

 

She seeks after more

More than possible for her to give

More than possible for her to attain.

 

What is this foolishness

Girl yet not woman

Striving for more?

 

What is this atrocity

Woman of a wife

Trying to earn love?

 

Women of this planet

Beautiful souls tormented

All yearning for love.

 

dear feminine souls, listen close

Stop all the mindless chatter

Listen to truth untold.

 

Precious one of a kind you,

You matter.

Not for what you do,

Not for what you become,

Not for what you lack.

 

You simply matter

Because you are loved

The woman of you.

 

You are loved with

Such wild authenticity

Beyond what you can imagine

Beyond what you can believe.

 

This gentle power of love

Has already walked the chambers

Of your anguished soul.

Has already felt the depth

Of your pain.

 

Love already understands

All you wish to be

But all you are not.

 

Love doesn’t demand

Doesn’t ask one iota of you.

Rather she gives,  embraces

The entirety of you.

 

Women of this world,

Please listen close

You need to hear.

 

You are loved,

There is nothing more

Nothing more to the equation.

 

You are loved beyond

Every shadow of any doubt.

Embrace this truth.

 

Come enter warmth,

Release your weary body

Into the sphere of free,

No price tags, no demands

Only peaceful belonging.

 

Wild uncontainable beauty,

Fire that ignites your soul,

This is what you’re longing for,

Infinite love.

 

Where you belong

Where you are called

Is beyond human knowledge

Is beyond the fathomable.

 

Dear feminine beauties, you,

Relentless, unconditional love

Inks every letter of your name.

 

Nothing for you to do,

Nothing to stand and protest

Nothing changes the verdict.

 

Infinite love writes only truth:

You. Are. Loved.

 

Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤
