"I will go down with this ship
I won't hold my hands up and surrender.
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be."
This quote from DIDO's song "White Flag" tells an important story about love. Love is passion, hurt, fear and rejection. But most importantly, as outlined in the song above, it is about a feeling that we cannot let go. It is overwhelming and scary but it feels good. Love is something we search for our whole lives yet even when we find it, we sometimes don't realise until it is too late. Some people may never find love and some people may have it all their life.
Your parents might love you, and you might love your friends but romantic passionate love is something much stronger than that. It is such a good feeling that we don't want to let it go when we have and often we will do anything to keep it.
So how do you feel about love? I guess some people would read this and think that I only believe in love because I have found it myself. However, in return I ask, have you ever found love? If you have not then do not expect it to come to you. You have to believe in love but at the same time you must be patient and there is always the possibility that you will find it. And it feels so wonderful and precious that if you give up on love, it just might give up on you.
