You don’t NEED a man!

Stop waiting for a man to complete you

To make your dreams come true

Your happiness is in your own hands

Now, what would you like to do?

A poet, a singer

An acrobat?

All things are possible

Just know that

You were born to thrive

Not merely survive

And there’s no-one quite like you

So connect to your heart

And just make a start

Who knows what it might lead to.

You don’t need a man

If you have a plan

Or maybe you don’t have that

Just quieten your mind

And you will find

Your souls’ love emerging

A sweet whisper here

If you have an ear

A subtle, tiny thread

Of something you love

A sign from above

Dispel fear and dread

What is Creation calling you to?

Dip in your toe

You may be surprised

The beauty of life awaits you.

  1. Hi Karen, thank you for inviting me over to your site! This is so validating for me because …. and I will be bold here and rather than make this declaration through Grouchpout ( though I probably will anyway in a vignette ) I have not been in a relationship since the I-phone came out 😂and you know , at one time in my life Insould have felt ashamed and now I feel totally okay with it. ✨🙏🏻 Wonderful writing!!

    1. Yes, I hear you! Society portrays being in a relationship as the norn and that singledom is a curse! Oh no, that’s not the case! Good on you for being bold and authentic. I love your writing too!
