In Life we believe,

We can choose who to love.

Convincing ourselves,

It’s a gift from above.

We know it takes work,

For a relationship to grow.

Yet, we’re missing an obvious

Piece of life’s flow.

The best relationships

Aren’t built on struggle and pain.

Compromising ourselves,

With nothing to gain.

The truth of the matter,

It’s easy to do.

When you don’t choose who you love,

You let love choose you.

  1. It’s a poem about choosing the wrong person. Sometimes what we think we want is not what is important in a person or a relationship. Surprisingly, love that just unexpectedly blossoms with someone we wouldn’t have consciously “chosen” can often give us all of the things that we didn’t even know we were missing.


  2. I’ve been enjoying your posts so much (and impressed with your writing skills!) and keeping a file of all your posts. But somehow Johnny, Johnny, etc Part 1 is lost. When you get a chance, I’d love to have it again. Love you, Mom
