I was humming a tune as usual, I recorded it and I knew what that melody would be good for. I wanted to write about the cheekiness of chasing someone I just met. I as probably inspired by camp events. Then I thought about HIMYM and how Victoria and Ted met. Them wanting a perfect date memory that will never be tarnished. As a result they didn’t kiss. It was cool and all and if it was a song that has been released, I would probably enjoy the song.
However, I won’t ever write it.
People that know me well would know that I love dabbling with many things. As one that writes songs, I would love to be able to write all kinds of songs. It would super cool if I just write a song about something totally random. The songs that will never be written are songs that goes against what I believe.
Why the song above will never be written is because I don’t think love should be distorted in that way. Love is more than wanting a perfect memory of a person. Love is commitment.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
How many TV shows these days portray a love that is patient and kind? How many TV shows a love that does not dishonours others?
In face of a sweet tempting lie, I honestly cannot say that I haven’t stumbled. I have failed again and again.
Truly it is exciting to talk to someone you never met and find a connection. Truly it is exciting when you find attraction with each other. However, what is the hurry? If love is patient, won’t it be worth the wait?
I feel like a hypocrite for saying this, but I do believe it now. I wonder how much attraction affects the way we do things? May we hold love with a more sacred importance.
