A MATTER OF CHOICE


Meeting of two hearts and souls
to emerge as one,
compliment not contradict,
care for, not being callous.

Two hands better than one,
to face challenges, crises, calamities,
Happy and sad times together
And emerge unscathed.

Growing in each other’s company,
Without getting the better of the other,
the subtleties of life understood better,
setting an example for more individuals.

What if it does not work out?
One may decide to opt out.
Sense of loss, betrayal, grief, rejection and confusion,
Leaving it behind, one may start anew.

Two is better, but single and free
can yield the desired result.
Creativity need not be curbed or restricted,
Life need not be a burden,
Freedom can be by choice..

    A person once married gets to know the joys of sharing and caring, and if for some reason, things don't work, when they have tried all they could, then they could find someone else who is compatible. (Report) Reply
