Love Poem: Hard Way

Hard Way

Do not let the ease by nature blind
  The eyes that sear a pathway throughout the night,
And do not let the complex cloud the mind
  To love revealing unobstructed sight?
Do not let the glamour of the swan
  Obscure the heart with beauty and desire,
And let the first impression thus be gone
  To glean the duck that flies beneath the wire.
Do not let the shallow sight supplant 
  The struggle to be more than simple clay 
And do not let the hard way disenchant 
  For sometimes harder is the better way.
