Morals

It is difficult for me
To pen a poem with a moral
I have none
Not where you are concerned
For there is nothing
I would not sacrifice
(Except of course my children)
To make you want me more
You see
That is true love
No need to encumber
Or bind it down
With hidden lies
When truth will say the same
In a moralistic way

rob, an unmoralistic poem with morals...great write, an interesting take too. ;-)

does true love need a moral? hell no. a sense of right and wrong cannot touch what is pure. but you already knew that and that's why you wrote this beautiful piece. so why do i preach to the choir... perfect! cheers

Isn't deliberate absence of moral itself a moral? It reminds me of Camu's Outsider where the main character is not tried for his crime but instead for some other trivial things!

Nice one Rob, Y'know, I think we just write what we write and the reader decides which way they want to take it, and some even find morals where we didn't intend one to be.....lol.....Andrew.cool

Really like this one Rob thumbs up with love for another..no morals,no rules..
But with children..yes, as born of love,a need to protect and care for, and ensure a good footing in life.

Hi, trurorob,
True love would never require that children be sacrificed and it never encumbers but rather it frees. These are truths not morals from the poet's pen.

To build a lasting love, One of the ingredients of a foundation should start with honesty and truth not lies.. that you would be nothing you would not sacrifice to to make her want you more (except children) I believe you found a moral.... cheers bouquet
