AFRAID TO LOVE (POEM)

hough an electrician's love may shock me
A comedian may turn my love into a joke
A player may see my love as a game
An actor may love me as a play
A technologist may analyse my love on a flowchart
I'm not afraid to love.

Though a doctor's love may turn me a patient
A pharmacist may consider my love as a prescription
A psychiatrist may examine my love as madness
A scientist may think of my love as an experiment
I'm not afraid to love.

Though an economist may see my love as scarce
A trader may see my love as a business
A banker may perceive my love as money
An accountant may look at my love as balanced
Yet, I'm not afraid to love.

Though a lawyer may judge my love in the court
A politician's love for me may be full of lies
A criminal's love for me is in danger
A soldier's love for me is battle
A policeman may see my love as a bribe or a crime
Still, I'm not afraid to love.

Though a farmer may plant my love as a seed
A caterer may prepare my love as food
A tailor may cut my love in pieces
A teacher's love may be a lesson for me
An electric company's staff may turn off my love
I'm still not afraid to love.

Though a pastor may consider my love a prayer point
An architect may redesign my love
A driver may leave my love in transit
A DJ man may scratch my love
A musician may play my love as a note
A goldsmith may value my love as gold
God's love for me is salvation.
