My innocence will never fade or be kept inside, or yours, or yours. We are made of the same light.

Thank you for the thoughts given.

Forever,

How lovely for you to share your daughter\'s picture of innocent love dear Max - the couplets make clear that if only we carry that special care for each other right through til the end we have made a statement to any that follow on the same path of love - - give your little treasure a big hug from me for making her Mom smile with happiness.

Maxine,
I love the drawing of your little family!
I’m sure there’ll always be “some of that pure innocence we had in the beginning” within us till the end!
Yes, moms/mums are very special! Our love for our children is special and endless!
Great couplets! I like how you complemented the drawing with the write! Super!

What Are We?!
SLR said:

Ms Maxine, you were completely right to refer me to this poem. Very thought provoking. It\'s so true. Real life with it\'s expectations and our goals to meet them while still being true to our inner selves. Great write.

BRIAN & ANGELA said:

THANKS MAX ~ You have your Mona Lisa face ~ and this Poem is a conundrum ! You pose a philosophical question and then answer NO ! For six different (but honourable) reasons !
1 NO ~ Cos it\'s a DOG eat DOG World !
2 NO ~ Cos revenge would damage our soil
3 NO ~ Cos by crushing we ourselves are crushed
BUT we can win by success
4 NO ~ Cos to consume HATE makes our hearts cry
5 NO ~ BUT we all have a chance to live right
And in the end that is our vindication
6 NO ~ It\'s simple MATHS two wrongs make it
TWICE as wrong ~ but a Right nullifies a Wrong !
I agree with all those ~ AMEN

I also agree with your last MAXIM ! Coming from Liverpool ~ Like all Scousers I\'m an Intellectual ~ BUT ~ because knowledge is always expanding \"The more I know ~ The more i know I don\'t know !\"
Thanks for caring & sharing ~ BRIAN
Please check SUMMER LOVING ~ Thanks B !

Good write. I live my life in a very positive way, I try to see the good in everything, to see the reason why see my poem \'Soul Centre\'.

This is beautiful but more than that, it\'s soul stirring. How many people go through life with this struggle and are never able to rise above the pettiness. Thank you for sharing this epiphany.

A great write Maxine! How far are we willing to go for love? I think love should come naturally---forget the games. I like how you ended your write! Wise!

Some good questions to ask and some believe that love and war are the same thing. How far we dare go to achieve that love we seek.

Laura said:

Maxine,
Love your beautiful pic and your awesome write! Very insightful!

Fair, love, war...
They’re just words. Words that are only meaningful when we look within ourselves and be true to ourselves first and then we can be fair and true to others!

A great read, my dear Maxine.
These words ring so true!
“Crushing our enemies down only brings us down further.” “
“The key of life’s knowing, is that we know absolutely nothing”
...especially about others!

~Laura~

THANKS MAX ~ Love the decisive Structure & Subject of this defiant Poem ~ MAD MAX at her strongest ! (That is a complement !) I don\'t mind being ALONE in my FLAT ~ six night a week (Friday Night is ANGELIC !) but I don\'t like to be LONELY ! BUT you poem has woke me up to reality ! Next Friday will be the last ANGELIC night for at least a YEAR and I didn\'t want to think about it ~ you are WICKED ! ! ! BUT I have lots of Family & Friends ~ I love my JOB ~ and I can SKYPE ANGELA even though she will be 12 hours ahead ! So our mutual loneliness will only be PHYSICAL and not MENTAL or SPIRITUAL and I will be in NZ for two weeks in AUGUST ! Friends of mine whose marriages have fractured sometimes feel more ALONE (and LONELY) having had someone to act as a \"Human Hot Water Bottle !\" It is usually much harder for the Ladies (of my acquaintance) than the MEN to forge a new relationship and they are often the most innocent and the most hurt ! I have lots of \"friends\" who are HAPPY ALONE ~ BUT none who are LONELY & HAPPY ! Your photo is LOVELY and I can\'t understand why you are alone ~ BUT every Blessing and you have MY PERMISSION to be Happy Alone and to be AS YOU ARE ! Thanks for a very thought provoking Poem ~ CYBER HUGS ~ BRIAN & ANGELA ~ @@@

A beautiful poem.

Thank you Maxine.

Sometimes even amongst people you can be alone.

We all are on our own journey\'s in life and it can be lonely at times.

Keep writing

My dear Maxine,
You are a beautiful and wise young lady! I wish I had been as wise at your age! I wish I had seen that writing in the Stars way back then...
Things would have been a lot different (for me)! All is ok now. I’m finally in a good place! It took a long time to find my independent niche, but I did! 😊

Your poem says it all! Kudos to you my sweet young lady! I loved the read. Your children and you are so blessed to have each other! All my love to your beautiful family!

Hugs 🤗
~Laura~

I\'m 100% for the sentiments of this poem. If you can live alone, then everything else is possible but not necessary.... and the last two lines are magic..

A super write Maxine . As much as I love my wife I also enjoy my own company and enjoy my activities with others. Without these diversities so many relationships flounder and, in a trusting relationship, it\'s so important to cherish them.

Good emotive write, being alone can have its fears but if you a content within your own being all can be wonderful.
