Gifts or Rights



Perhaps love feels it is disgraced
As gifts by rights have been replaced.
And gratitude, replaced by claims,
Begets resentment, whose black games
Fuel fires which then are never traced
Back to their origin.  Misplaced
Ideas of charity, distaste
At what is freely given maims
Love.
If love is truly interlaced
Between us, rights are then debased
For tolerance, sans stated aims,
Trumps that which legislation frames.
That which is God can’t be defaced -
Love
