Does The Rain Show you How To Love?

the rain,
like madness,
it hits the window panes

the lightning,
so fierce,
but the thunders roar so mild, in vain

the wind,
so cold,
i swear, if it touches my bare cheek,
it will leave a scar, or a glow

so do i run outside?
and feel the rain pour on my skin?
do i challenge the wind?
do i ask for what men cannot give?
for what only nature can,
and what nothing else will?

and i wonder,

if love, like rain do happen
like let's say,
so eagerly stomping the earth
so passionately upon the land

if love, like lightning do flash
like let's say,
so brightly
not letting anyone not know

if love, like thunder do declare
like let's say,
so mildly but strong
so eagerly even if it may be wrong

so do i run outside?
and feel the love strike in my veins?
do i challenge myself?
do i say that love,
like rain, happens?
that love,
like lightning, flashes?
that love,
like thunder, declares?

but it all comes down to this,
1 Corinthians 13 verses 4 to 8
that "Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails..."

and then i think,
what if love is bold?
if love is none of the above...
but then i realize,
that if love is bold without the above,
love is foolish

it is only right to be bold in love,
when what you're being bold for,
is for the person you love.
when you are being bold,
for the right reasons.

and trust me,
what's right in my eyes, may not be right in yours.

so at the end of the day,
we should come back to God, and seek His wisdom
because who will know best for your loved one,
if it's not Him who made us all? :)

"For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again."

man, it's pretty crazy how a gush of wind on my face can cause me to be inspired to write a whole post for you all. :D
God, everything You make is good, is inspiring. :)

God bless!
