Love or Ambivalence?

I am a senior citizen, visual artist, and inspirational poet. My spiritual quest to know Jesus Christ intimately relates to many of my rhymes. However, I also write romantic rhymes and rhymes drawing from other topics. One of my goals is to illustrate my rhymes with my original drawings.






Out across the great High Plain,
Labors of love yield a gain.

In ambivalence my foe I arraign;
My struggle impossible to contain.

One rids oneself of sin's dark stain,
As teardrops heal yesteryear's pain.

Still, affection never feign,
Although courtesy one may deign.

Here rain sustains silken grain -
I convince myself that I am sane.

Speak of love with kisses arcane;
The Real McCoy one must attain.

My complicity foes must constrain
For upon green fields summer lain
Renders the loveless vain.
