“Embracing Discovery”

about love

they said
‘you’ll know’
but I didn’t know
until I knew

for everyone
it’s different
for me
it was a hug
that embraced
my heart

how do you let go
of something so real

I questioned
I cried
I listened to God
and asked my love
to marry me

love is looking
into the eyes of your husband
across the way
wanting to climb over the table
to get to him
but you don’t
because you know
he’s not going anywhere

now I know
and can tell others
‘you’ll know’
and then watch them
not know
until they know


how does darkness
make death
so appealing

a young girl cutting
a woman aborting
a man escaping

there’s a veil
set in place
with a vision
of paradise
that’s decorated
until chains
set in place

locked in silence
held in isolation
surrounded in love
but on an island

not being able
to swim
to safety

in the dark
but surrounded
by Light

having to choose
to be free
having regret
to take hold

so many
make the choice
to regret
so many
make the choice
to be freedom

be available
to listen
be coming
in love
be willing
to sacrifice
your opinion

is an illusion
that’s stepped into

help someone
step into
the Light
