Settling, Not Settling

Lights shining across my face, I said yes

To become his queen, I accept

When all the while the king in him has not been released

My guards down for a split second

I almost made a mistake that would have cost me a lifetime

Only if the truth didn’t fail to come out of his lips

Only if I didn’t allow pretense to blind my heart’s eyes

I lost sight of where I was and headed back towards the wrong direction

wrong is wrong and it never feels right

Waiting for diamonds, I almost settled for gold-colored plastic

Looking for a king I blindly stumbled upon a peasant

When he used a stick to sweep me off my feet

I regained my sight

I picked up my own broom

I swept myself out of his arms





I am a 26 year-old educator on the run of becoming all that I can in the time that I have. A few years ago, I embarked on a journey filled with spiritual discoveries, healthy habits, and a passion for education stronger than I've ever had. Learning what to do to become a better person have always interest me. One of my passions is to know a little about everything in order to gain the capability of forming my own opinion so others won't have to do it for me. Another passion that was buried deep inside finally came to the surface and allowed me to see the adventurous side of me. I am on a journey to see the world and do things outside of my comfort zone. I will write all about it along the way!
