this is what i’ve learned about love

It’s all there is, all there ever was and all that will truly be. It has no end or beginning, no right or wrong way. There’s a certain flow you can feel, one that has no words or labels, but one that swims freely in the oceans of our now.

There’s a star I look at every night. And I think about all the people I’ve ever loved and wonder if they look too. I wonder if it’s the love in the star I’m seeing or the love of my journey I’m feeling. There’s that cheesy line that comes to mind that we’re all made of stardust, but more vulernably, we’re all made of what we trust.

I used to wonder if she would come out, the woman I looked up to inside of me. The firewood was always there, but it was about lighting the match. I forced it a few times, I pictured it many times – but it only took one time to choose to be her in every day. And the funny part is, she never knew when the timing would be right, but I did.

If there’s anything real in this world, it’s what keeps us breathing. Everything around us could be fabricated by our perception or some force bigger, but what’s within will always be real somewhere. There’s no clear answer; that’s ours to create. But the question will always be clear because something inside already wrote it.

This is what I’ve learned about love.

  1. Wow! A stunning post, Grace! How true…If there’s anything real in this world, it’s what keeps us breathing… I love the depth in your writing, be it a poem or prose, you always sound lyrical. And your last line…But the question will always be clear because something inside already wrote it… simply mesmerised me. Well done, Grace 😊💖

  4. Great message! Love is the only real thing I believe as well. Everything else is temporary. It reminds me of I Corinthians 13:13 “And now these three things remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 🥳

  5. Such a beautiful, relatable piece. Sometimes we can see what we’re made of within but it’s so hard to express it or to know how or when. When I stop overthinking good things happen. I admire and appreiciate you, your skill, your gorgeous kind vibes and generous spirit so much, dear Grace! 🙏💗🤗💝

  6. Thanks for sharing that which is to remain a mystery, but the part that we do know is enough. The part we do know is Love expressed through faith or whatever a person’s mind has perceive. Love is on the inside fighting to be seen and to be known, by them that possess and them that is able to receive it! A lovely thought provoking writing!
