Urges, drives, instinct, compulsion,

ideas, emotions, fear, hope;

So many motives moves us to action,

as ego tries to cope.


Some motives are clear with conscious intent,

while others move forth subconsciously;

Motivation is the driving force,

that moves the body metaphysically.


It is believed that a motive with “good” hopes,

is called righteousness;

And a motive with “bad” hopes,

partakes in evilness.


Motivation is our moral organ,

that moves us towards hope or despair;

We can move selfishly or cruelly,

or we can show that we care.


Love is the force that renders towards Beauty,

the motive of our caring intents.

Love is the motivation to fulfill our specie’s duty,

of moving towards consonance.
