I don’t know but…

June 20, 2013

I don’t know… but maybe it’s the movies to blame, the books we read, the TV shows we watch, the songs we listen to, the quotes we receive, the stories we hear. Maybe they’re to blame for the misconceptions young people have now of love. Young as we are, we are blinded that we need to be loved and feel loved. As if the love from the family and friends we get is not enough. As if the love, oh, the unconditional love from God isn’t enough.

I don’t know… but maybe it’s the movies to blame, the books we read, the TV shows we watch, the songs we listen to, the quotes we receive, the stories we hear. Maybe they’re to blame for the broken hearts, the broken relationships, the broken families – as early as anyone is aware of. Young as we are, we are too caught up with belonging to a relationship we think could be for keeps. We mistake infatuation for love, and worst, lust and longing, the fleshly desires, for love. As if the love we feel is real. As if the love we’ve come to know is love in its truest form.

I don’t know… but maybe it’s the movies to blame, the books we read, the TV shows we watch, the songs we listen to, the quotes we receive, the stories we hear. Maybe they’re to blame for the immaturity, the insecurity, the inconsistency. Young as we are, we are made to believe that love, no matter how short or long the time we’ve been with the person is love in it’s slightest bit. We think that the length that doesn’t matter as long as we know we’re drowning in that feeling. As if we’ve been through so much. As if we know everything about love.

I don’t know.
