Love Wins

(a poem)

Empires 
and institutions
will never understand 
Love

Love cannot be 
codified;
commodified;
controlled.

Love 
is risky;
behaves erratically; 
will not bow down.

Love 
places humanity first;
demands equality;
leads to sacrificial living.

Love cannot be 
vanquished;
eliminated;
destroyed.

Love 
wins,
even at the cost

of itself.
