Never Settle

The Summer Triangle

The Summer Triangle (Photo credit: Robert Snache –

Shine a light
Across this darkened street
Run for your life
Down alleyways at night
Reach for the stars
Before they dim their lights above
Look for the jewels
In the debris of forgotten love

Sing your truth
To an indifferent crowd
Hold the banner
In a singular parade
Never settle now
For less than the glory above
Never settle for less
Than the very best of love

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  2. “Never settle for less
    Than the very best of love”

  3. This was awesome to read today because for some reason I have had the following line from ‘Thelma and Louise’ stuck in my head all day long: ‘You get what you settle for,’ and it has been bothering me, because I do not want to live a life in which I settle!

  4. Move on, never settle, reach out, share.. Nice blog. Thank you Helen!
