Being brave

was not on my ”to be” list

neither was being broken

but

beauty and grace

sure were

I did not know

what life would bring

but

I decided not to wait…

I looked for beauty

in books

tried to complete myself

by looking for other beings

lived in a bigger box

to be better

 thought maybe

my horizons were broadened

began to” buy”

myself  ”happiness”

BUT

the bills were paid in emotions

that were much more heartbreaking

than I thought they would be

there is always a

‘BUT’

that comes in between

what I am

and

what I want to be

Sometimes

it breaks me

sometimes

it sets me free

Now

I know the secret

to be happy in the future

it is

to live in the now

to be a butterfly tomorrow

first i need

to accept my caterpillar body today

the secret

my friend to a happy end

a lot of beauty and grace

is that

life won’t be found

in books and boxes

that are closed

sometimes its there

even when you are blue

that love is not

in how one looks

that grace is not

in stilettos and tight skirts

but all of it

is just

in

one’s

being

that happiness

is not something that can be paid for

and

all worth keeping

will not have bills
