Even If

a love poem to remind us that despite our differences, our incompatibilities, our struggles, and our problems we still have the reason to smile, to hope, to wish, to dream… and the more reason to love.

it doesn’t have to be perfect.
it doesn’t always have to be romantic, cheesy, or sappy.
it doesn’t even have to be the way you expect it to be.

you just have to love, for whatever reason that maybe.

they say life is not a bed of roses.

it isn’t indeed.

my take is, you just need to find that one perfect rose, where you can lay your head at night, comfortably, lovingly, unmindful of the thorns around,because that perfect rose will protect you against his self, against his own imperfections.
2020 is the year, humanity will forever remember, for sure because of a pandemic or the famous COVID 19; but I for one will forever remember this year, as the year, I found true love: true love from people across the world who adores and supports my poetry, true love from people who honestly and sincerely care despite my shortcomings, true love from people I just met, true love from people I just reconnected with, and the truest most sincere, honest to goodness love from my family.

let 2020 be a reminder of our incompetencies, our shortcomings, our vulnerabilities, our differences, our inaccuracies, and our failures;
but let it be a reminder too of our ability to LOVE, to HOPE, to be KIND, to DREAM, and most importantly, to be HAPPY.

Happy 2021 everyone. DREAM ON, BELIEVE, and LOVE

with much love,
Michelle

Greater Things Are Unfolding Soon

“The universe will conspire

to make your dreams come true

to make your mystical life a reality

to make it happen just as you wish it”

If you ask me if I wanted anything else in life, I’d say no. I don’t think there is anything else that I would want for in life rather than raising well-mannered and grounded children. 

But not because I don’t want anything else doesn’t mean, don’t have my dreams. I still have my dreams. And I believe that dreams really do come true. It can happen anytime in your life – even when you least expect it.

You just have to quiet yourself, learn to listen to what the universe is telling you. You don’t need to rush, no need to push, no need to complain, no need to whine. You have to wait for that perfect timing, perfect moment. 

“Perfect timing” for some happens at the prime of their youth – young, single, and full of life, that’s wonderful. While others “perfect timing” may come too late in life – married, with children, a bit matured in age, and that is still perfectly fine. 

My “perfect timing” happens. My “dreams do come true” happens. 

Yours will happen too, in time.
