Riddle Me This. #5

[center][big][c=1F5E00]I am a feeling,[/big] [/c][c=BF6900]quite hard to define,[/c]
[c=008099]Yet, it's a part of me, [/c][c=009E4F]in every design.[/c]
[c=008099]A love for all, [/c][c=005E2F]With no limit nor bound,
[/c][i][c=004A59]A force that spreads,[/c] [c=005E2F]without making a sound.
[b][c=BF0000]Some try to fake me,[/c] [c=665D00][big] for their personal gain,[/c][/b][/big]
[c=009E4F][i]But my nature is pure,[/i][/c] [c=004A59][i]and always will be the same.[/i][/c][b][/b]
[c=009E4F]I am not quite tangible,[/c] [c=004A59]nor am I easy to perceive[/c],
[c=009E4F]Yet, without me, [/c][b][i][c=004A59]this world would never achieve.[/c][/i][/b]

[big][i][b][c=7700B2]What am I?[/c][/b][/i][/big][/center]

This riddle has gone on far too long I must confess,
So a hint to give away the answer, so we may dismiss.
The riddle is talking of many emotions true,
But [b][c=359E00]humans[/c][/b] are the [b]heart [/b]of it all, and [b][c=BF0000]love[/c][/b] is too.
[i][b][c=359E00]Love for our fellow humans[/c][/b][/i] to be precise,
For we [i][b][c=008099]need to care for each other[/c][/b][/i], no matter the price.

Now I assume this is good enough a clue for you,
To help you solve this and follow through.
So please take a moment, don't be in a rush,
And try to solve this riddle with a logical brush.

A gift that I'll offer to whoever posts it first,
Might bring some excitement, and quench your intellectual thirst.
It's unfortunate that it took us quite so long,
But now we can finally finish this riddle song.
Unfortunately the answer is actually quite obvious,
But sometimes the simplest answer can leave us oblivious.
@DrRiddler Altruism?
@SW-User Specifically it's humanitarianism, but altruism is essentially the equivalent. So yep, good job Waterthefields.
I suppose that I am going to log off for a while,
Perhaps in my absence the answer will rile.
Here's some more clues to help you through,
Since it seems that this is such a puzzle true.

Love, compassion, trust, and hope,
These are all parts of what It invokes.

It is what we all hold dear,
To show compassion and alleviate fear.
It brings hope to those in need,
And helps to foster love and goodwill indeed.
Faith in something definitely indeed,
But my essence goes beyond mere creed.
@DrRiddler This riddle is making my head spin. I'm going to take a break in case I hit the gin!

Selflessness is a good reply,
For it certainly is what it implies.
But the riddle still has more to say,
Love and boundlessness are also in play.

I’m going to say Hope.

I’ll try again tomorrow.
Conceptually close, it is certainly a part,
But that is still just a piece of the art.
Some may indeed attribute this to their god,
But it's a concept that humans also applaud.

@DrRiddler trust
Trust is essential for unlocking the way,
But It is not just built on what people say.
Although I may like your answer, it is not right,
perhaps try another; this may possibly take all night.
@DrRiddler Night has become day, so I'll have to tackle this in my own way.

Unfortunately not quite as base an emotion,
But it certainly does cause quite that commotion.
Compassion is definitely where it does seed,
But without action it's just a thought or a creed.

Belief is part of this puzzle that's true,
But it still takes more to see it through.

Love is certainly a piece of the puzzle,
But the answer true still remains a struggle.
Spnk8 · 36-40, M
Forgiveness is a feeling that's hard to define,
A force that spreads and heals the mind.
But unfortunately, that alone is not the key,
To unravel the answer you seek, so think carefully.
Menetics · 26-30, F
You are Love.
