Are you a chronic procrastinator? You know- the kind that procrastinates stopping procrastination. If yes – then I have been you for all too long.
This procrastination break is sponsored by #Ugblogweek. Uganda Blogging Community has us dancing to Cupids arrows and I wasn’t about to let them pass me by. (My vigilance will make me prosper).
So here’s a piece I wrote some time back that I find timely for this conversation.
What is love if you feel empty with it
If your soul starves in a garden blossoming with fruit
If it is the desert wind
Peeling at your lips
If it only reminds you of places you regret living in
Like an old cassette playing the latest jams
What is love that never loves you back
That shows face
Only to stab you in the back
Isn’t a lover supposed to be a keeper
Where is love when the sun refuses to shine
And the moon won’t keep you warm
When the cold seeps through the cracks in your skin
And you detest the air you breath in
Where is love
When your head seeks a heart to rest on
And your mind wanders in places she isn’t wanted
Love is meant to be a safe haven you run to
A spring that waters your soul
A place your mind finds rest
A shelter for the thoughts that race in your heart
A pillow to harness all the energy in your bones
Love is not meant to reduce you
Love is meant to be Home
There’s this thing I like to say that “If it leaves you empty it is not love.”
I have had many people disagree on this but I for one believe love in itself comes with a fullness. Whether it is love for self or love for others.
But hey these are only my thoughts
