The One

tall

skinny

athletic

all on the list in my heart

funny yet serious

book smart yet street smart

gangsta yet reserved

numbers 11, 12, & 13 respectively

the funny thing is

lists

list may give you what you want

but not what you need

i need him

he checks out on my list

check, check , check

yet

he cheats

he breaks my heart

he mishandles me

i confused him for Destiny

Thank God for second chances

for hope

for something new

for my beach view 

sandy hair

ocean eyes

a smile that glistens like the sea

where did you come from?

check the list

you don’t fit

don’t fit at all.

Do I risk it?

Do I broaden my horizons?

Or, should I play it safe?

safe from harm…..

but, also safe from adventure

safe from delight

safe from “the one”

He’s the one I should risk everything for

yet, I succumb to my care of safety

I’ve been gone too long

Too long I’ve been gone

i leave my safe harbor

and I launch out into the deep

into the sea

i launch and ride the waves

knowing that He is worth…

every toss

every dip

He is worth the risk

only one is worth this

He is “the one.”
