Identity of a Soul mate

Identity of a Soul mate

A Poem by Kuda-kwa-Ishe

Do you ever wonder if the moon is lonely?
We see and admire the stars that surround it
We watch it appear as the sun leaves
and disappear as the sun returns
We know how attached the moon is to the Earth
and we know how closely it affects the Earth...
but yet, I wonder if the moon is alone...

What is a soul mate?
One who sticks with you forever?
Not necessarily perfect but could never do wrong?
"A soul mate is supposedly someone that connects with you
You could be total opposites but somehow, 
everything just seems to click when you're together"

There are so many definitions for a soul mate
Everyone has their own idea of what or who a soul mate is
In the same way everyone has different views of what love is
So most people "know" what a soul mate is
and yet most people never get to find their soul mate...

From the casual knowledge we learn from our parents as we grow up
to the romance and love stories that surround us
We are told that there is someone out there for each and every one of us
We are fed ideas of how this one person will bring happiness in our lives
and so some of us end up sabotaging ourselves
either waiting for the one and avoiding those who show a slight flaw we dislike
or clinging onto someone who we believe is everything
viewing their negative behaviour to be quaint
and excusing their toxicity in fear of being alone.

What if...
soul mates don't exist?
What if all the encouragement to get married
or finding happiness...
was all a lie?
Don't get me wrong, I know there are people out there
madly in love and experiencing their happiest moments...
But what if all that is a coincidence?
From the increasing number of divorces
to those forced into marriage...
Have we lied to ourselves about what love is?

To those who have found their one and only, I envy
I tell you don't take what you have for granted
for most of us are still searching

This is an absolutely beautiful poem that you have written here. Very thoughtful, and gets one thinking as well. Especially in the second-to-last stanza.

The flow was very smooth, didn't feel choppy anywhere. Overall, was really well put. Good job!
