Must love be Stupid?

Must love be Stupid?

Head on vacation as heart is put to work
Future left in the hands of coincidence and luck
A race to feelings forgetting roots before shoots
A place that suits in ignorance it fits
The heart is god forgetting Love is practical
Not a concept practiced in the theoretical
Stories from authors for infants paint to us a love filled magic
The frantic race to love in ignorance auctioned which is tragic
The god fails as it gets broken and blamed for all mistakes
Knowledge preserves and protects
Stupidly to get over one you go under another one
In a futile race to locate the missing one
To love an unknown is stupid
To hope to achieve without study is greed freed
You read to become whatever you wish to become
You study to excel in what you choose to become
To love you need to read on love
But to be distinguished – study to excel in love
Distil and share what you read
For it will be next generation’s lead
See life as it is not as you wish it was
Love covers a multitude of sins not all the sins
Love must see sins infatuation will free
And locate sins that will steal or kill
In love take stock
To know if you are stock
Review the pathway of your love in sincerity
For this will reveal to you your path’s identity
In love set objectives
In love demand for your objectives
Figure out what you want and learn how to ask for it
Don’t do anything half way except you are ready to be half happy
Love is a personality with an identity
A friend with weed, friend in deed
Love is wise but humans are stupid

    Actually i did not get this. Maybe am not reading the right way. Anyway, love has to be stupid i think thats what attracts us.

    1. we have a generation of people who have excelled in many strata of life but love, because they have taken time to study on all of such areas except love.
      Love seems to be stupid because people know next to nothing and are unwilling to study. That’s the point of the poem – study love to excel in love.
