Finding The Woman I'm Meant To Be

Poetry

Human Kind

You could be my worst enemy

You could be my best friend

You could be the love of my life

You could be the person who ripped my heart out

You could be the first person to call me fat

You could be the last person to say I’m beautiful

You could be the person who rear-ended me and destroyed my neck and back

You could be the person who let me in front of you in rush hour traffic

You could be the person who voted for someone who stands for everything I’m against

You could be the person who granted my healthcare benefits

You could be the reason I get a lower salary

You could be the reason I have a job

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who you are

I will always wish you the best and show you kindness

Nothing Else

I don’t want to
Understand
Another soul

I don’t want
Another man’s
Hand to hold

I don’t need
Anything
More than this

I didn’t know
Chemistry before
Your kiss

I don’t want to
Start at
The beginning

I don’t want
To lose us
While we’re winning

I don’t need
Romance and
Butterflies

I didn’t know
True love
Until your eyes

I don’t want to
Be less than
You deserve

I don’t want
Ever after
Fairy tails

I don’t need
Fancy nights or
Jewelry

I didn’t know
We would be
Everything

I want to
Make you happy
Forever

I want this
You and me
Together

I need
Us to last
True and true

I know
What love is
Because of you

Insecure Space

There’s a space in my mind

Where my insecurities lie

I keep them all inside

They taunt me sometimes

There’s a place in my soul

Where my insecurities go

They travel lonely roads

Where I’ve been before

There’s a space inside my heart

Where my insecurities start

They lay there in the dark

Trying to tear us apart

There’s a space in my mind

Where my insecurities lie

They say you’ll change your mind

And you’ll leave me behind

There’s a place inside my soul

Begging you not to go

Filled with sadness I have known

Without you I’m alone

There’s a part inside my heart

That’s fighting with my soul

And the insecurities of my mind

They’re tearing me up inside.

Roll Of The Dice

The love of my life

Sleeps in front of me

And I can’t help but think

“I’m so lucky”

All the years before

Were empty

And out of nowhere

He found me

I always thought

“I know what love means”

But everything I looked for

Was never as it seemed

Now the love of my life

Sleeps in front of me

And I can’t help but think

“I’m so lucky”.

You Never Know

I never would have picked you

You never would have picked me

We were both looking for something

Neither one of us could see

I never knew this could happen

You never thought it would again

Being with someone who makes you happy

Everyday spent with your best friend

I never knew I was incomplete

You didn’t know what was missing

Waking up isn’t the same without you

Your lips were made for kissing me

I can’t see my life without you

You don’t say it but you feel the same

I’m going to love you forever

Even after you change my last name.
