And wow, I found Love


Love could only be shaped like the heart!
Love could only be shaped like the heart!

I always sought for love,

And was ever so exhausted;

Sometimes what I found

quickly turned slime

Other times I got to use lime

just so to keep sane;

But once it dawned on me

I may have forgot to start with me

aha I thought again

there was need to start again;

I surged to cut the crap

I dashed to ignore the mundane

and now it is so down the lane

that I found all the love within!!!

P.S : I am in a special week of my life, made all the more special by a current challenge to find new lodgings. I am however optimistic that I’ll move out of here by month end. I am so happy with myself and so thankful for my support network. What would I have done without Mama? And my Ss Hero, my siblings both dead and alive, my boys, my e-family and all? Even where I sometimes feel ‘pushed one too far’, I am glad for the lesson and the resilience it offers.
