Read Poem: Overused and Meaningless, by Kathleen Kush

What if you were told
That the word LOVE was overused and meaningless?
That your heart, your mind, your body
Was overused and meaningless?
That unconditional love
Was not real?
And then you realize it is true!
Your partner, your children your dearest friends
Remind you, eventually.
And you can not believe it.
You try so hard to reprogram your thoughts.
You are told it is just a learning experience.
You are tired of this type of education!
Therapy exhausts you.
If you must love,
Believe only in yourself.
And you will still be betrayed!
