Abundance by Veronica Hallissey

Run quickly from a love
which possesses by need.
It’s momentary satisfactions
bind you to a life of servitude.
It’s very negation of freedom
murders the giver and the recipient.
Love beckons not out of desperation,
but out of abundance.
It is life, calling to life.
It is life, begetting life.

I came across this poem by Veronica Hallissey in her book “Kiss The Moon”.   You can read  the rest of this poem and more of her poetry  here on her website From and Upper Floor.

  1. YES!!!!! Ms. Hallissey has “IT” right!!!!
    She is “on TARGET”! I am SO SURPRISED that someone FINALLY
    “HIT ON” the TRUTH that TOO MANY SEE/FEEL…but, do NOT SAY!!!
    SOOOO, WHAT TO DO?????
    BE THAT ARTIST that YOU always admired… DO THAT BIGTIME and
    let the “leaves” fall where “they” may!!!
    YOU will land on SOLID GROUND with a VERY STRONG identity
    that WILL SEE you through the “rocky/cloudy path ahead!!!”
    THANK YOU for this GREAT WISDOM sharing.
