Love & Life

Life’s a series
Of mistakes
Of missteps
Of false fronts
Of beautiful blunders

You fall and flounder
You lose and learn
You slide and stumble
Life’s a circular path
That brings you back
To where you started

It’s a walk through darkness
Without a glimpse of light
You never seem to know
Where you’re headed,
You just know
It’s probably not good

But love …

Love’s a series
Of corrections
Of clean slates
Of fresh paint
Of absolved debt

Love’s a million happy endings
That make up
For the previous
Billion shitty ones
Love’s a dance to a beat
You never stop humming
It’s a Get Out of Jail Free card
With a pulse and a smile

Love’s not a reward
For a life
Hard-lived
Love’s a result
Of a life
Hard-earned
