valēns m, f, n (genitive valentis); third declension
1. strong, vigorous, healthy
i am not a writer of poetry;
i am a passage between thoughts and things.
you would be proud, i like to believe,
if you saw the way i insisted on a reprieve.
it is such moments that bring light to me
and i know the right choice would be: to simply let it be.
so i tend to the gardens of my soul,
and sow the right seeds,
when the right person comes along i will know,
because i will be confident in what my heart needs,
and i won’t
i won’t get it wrong this time.
