The wrong concept of “the one”

They say there’s only one love for everyone,

We bend till we break to keep them, when we’re young.

Hurtful words, bitter tears – we endure them,

You think its worth it, and give it all- but get none.

Love isn’t magic, a soul mate or a perfect person,

It is patience, time, effort, respect and attention.

Words mean little, build your faith on actions,

Love is on its way- now stand still and let it come.

Dear readers,

Do you believe there is only person for everyone? Do you believe in soul mates?

  1. This poem hit home for me. Currently going through the bitter turmoil of what was seemingly ‘the one’ now seeing a four year relationship crumble in an instant. I sometimes like to think that there is a soul mate out there for us, but respect, patience and solid foundations are what are needed to create a beautiful relationship regardless. I could talk about this kind of topic for hours.

    All in all, beautiful poem, truth in every syllable. Loved it..


    1. Glad you could relate, J.T. I wondered if this poem would seem too jaded or cynical. But I felt that it needed to be said. Realism goes a lot farther than idealism. Hope you feel better soon. This too shall pass.
      Thank you!


      1. Thank you! I have written a song on the piano today and posted a link with it just now. Would love for your opinion if you get the time. Thanks again.
