When You Don’t Know What You LOVE // Day 7

10941826_10152972251237883_961617630005113941_nWhen it’s hard to know what you love

Because you like everything—

Making up your mind

Is like choosing a favorite ice cream.


Love is choice,

then following it.

Knowing you will change

And grow into love and it will grow into you

Like your skin,

Or marriage

Or parenthood

Or a new job.

You don’t know what you love until you let it

Test you

In its hard questions,

Gentle nudges

To go for the risk

Of asking more of yourself than

You never dared to dream,

Let alone, do.

This post is Day 7 of 31 days of poetry. What do you have a hard time choosing to love?
