Its so Easy


Its so easy,


a gay life to lead-


sans the challenges of love;



where all to question can be called,


and the lover and love, a mere human mutates;


all so easy, too easy,


the brief flutter of sex and lust to confuse


and lonely, loveless remain;




Easy,


a coward’s way out, too tough not to take:


too easily taken the coward’s way out;


the brave-heart’s craggy road


fraught with danger, loose with failure


yet which man dares not


the heavenly nectar of love to taste?



Which being’s so sated with lust and leisure


love’s beautiful flame to scorn?



It’s all so easy, all too easy


to travel the road less travelled


in lust, pleasure, need-


yet we all will, at the drop of a hat


choose the craggier, harder,


tougher road of love:


for, beautiful as life is, yet


love’s the icing on life’s cake.
