Surprises (A short poetic story)

“Find a good woman and settle down” that’s the advice of everybody in town, but John, he’s still busy building his dream from the ground up, says he’s not ready, or looking yet for that kind of Love.

His parents, they worry that he’ll let it slip through his hands, because he’s too distracted with his original plans.

Nonetheless, they know it’s his life to live, they’re just there for him with all the familial Love and advice they can give.

He says “I appreciate your concern, I really do, and I respect your advice and your point of view, thank you for respecting mine too, even though I don’t think like you.”

He continues, “maybe I’ll be ready one day, if the right one comes, I promise not to turn her away…I know not everything can be planned right down to the letter, and sometimes the surprises are even better.”

Successfully got my ISP switched over, glad to be back you all!

I hope life’s been treating you all well

I’d love to gather w/my readers

& sit for a spell, just chilling out

Listening to any stories you may

have to tell

As for me, I got a new book of poetry

for my anniversary, it’s a pretty neat read

You’d know the poet if I wrote his name

His work’s been around for ages

It can be pretty inspiring

Watching a fellow poet bleed their feelings out

onto reams & reams of pages
