When Love Turns To Thorn

Love is a mirror
The reflection of the mind
Love is a word
The expression of the mind

Ola Olawale
When Jah Rule Said'...love Is Pain...'did Someone Come And Kill His Mother?

When Jah Rule said'...love is pain...'
did someone come and kill his mother,
to let him know love is not pain
maybe he wanted to force love in a way or the other,

Pallavi Deepchand
In All Ways A Woman

In my young years I took pride in the fact that luck was called a lady. In fact, there were so few public acknowledgments of the female presence that I felt personally honored whenever nature and large ships were referred to as feminine. But as I matured, I began to resent being considered a sister to a changeling as fickle as luck, as aloof as an ocean, and as frivolous as nature. The phrase 'A woman always has the right to change her mind' played so aptly into the negative image of the female that I made myself a victim to an unwavering decision. Even if I made an inane and stupid choice, I stuck by it rather than 'be like a woman and change my mind.'

Being a woman is hard work. Not without joy and even ecstasy, but still relentless, unending work. Becoming an old female may require only being born with certain genitalia, inheriting long-living genes and the fortune not to be run over by an out-of-control truck, but to become and remain a woman command the existence and employment of genius.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
Lepanto

White founts falling in the courts of the sun,
And the Soldan of Byzantium is smiling as they run;

It stirs the forest darkness, the darkness of his beard,

They are a loversâ?? dying mirrors.

Nizar Qabbani
Chiang Chin Chiu

See the waters of the Yellow River leap down from Heaven, Roll away to the deep sea and never turn again! See at the mirror
in the High Hall Aged men bewailing white locks - In the morning, threads of silk, In the evening flakes of snow. Snatch the joys
of life as they come and use them to the full; Do not leave the silver cup idly glinting at the moon. The things that Heaven made
Man was meant to use; A thousand guilders scattered to the wind may come back again. Roast mutton and sliced beef will only
