The Hardest Thing to See

The hardest thing in the world to see

Is the difference

Between the person who says “I love you”

Because they want you to make them happy

And the one who says “I love you”

Because they want to make you happy.

 

But the difference,

Though so difficult to see

That it seems invisible,

Is immense.

For it is the dividing line

Separating

Selfishness from selflessness,

Neediness from giving,

Control from freedom,

Lust from love.

 

 

**This was something I was thinking about last night.  The truth of it is probably up for debate.  Some may see it differently than I do…  But I will be the first to admit that I have been guilty of saying it for the selfish reason in the past.***
