No Choice


“We choose

those we like;

with those we love,

we have no say

in the matter.”


~Mignon McLaughlin



Aside from unconditional love,

true love usually happens

in spite of ourselves.

Sometimes we don’t even pause

to decide if we choose to love someone

we just plummet head over heels

into a state of euphoric happiness

just because God placed that beautiful soul into our lives.

If the happenstance blooms into a relationship …

that is a choice.

Love is something in which we have no choice in the matter.

Love is helping someone love themselves.
