simple saturday

when it came down to it,
there wasn’t much he took
overly serious

he ran counter culture
caring little for image
or prestige or attaching
to things that looked good
from outside but left you malnourished and emptied
at days end

but he took relationship
seriously and he took
her seriously

which is why on a
simple saturday
with no pretense but
the honest of hearts
he gave her a ring
and said will you?

and she said yes



at times safari was nothing
like we thought it’d be,
and we quickly realized
there was really no way
to adequately prepare for
such uncharted territory

we had no map or compass,
outside of coming back to
a place of turning unlove into
love whenever we got lost

and it helped me figure out
quite fast the landscape of
this strange terrain which is:

it doesn’t matter how many
times you choose someone
when the jungle is good,
what matters is that you
would still choose them
when the jungle gets bad

let unlove become love
and choose them anyway

this became the north by
which we learned to travel
