Door Number Three

by Belinda Munoz on April 15, 2011

Chance
mixed with
a touch of hope,
a pinch of good luck, 
a dollop of consistency
and a hell of a lot of hard work
helped Dawn break new frontier.
All this culminates in a choice
Of a rock star status and 
having her cake and eating it, too.  
She surprised others by choosing 
love.

+++++++++++
This is a 55-word story for G-Man.
+++++++++++
Is love too often relegated to door number three, or whatever the last resort is?
Is love bigger than chance, choice, hope, luck, faith, consistency, hard work, etc?
Do we choose love often enough?
Do our so-called leaders?

Beautiful, Belinda. Do we choose love often enough? I believe in choosing love every time…..but sometimes you have to choose it whenever you can.

Great descriptive measurements in your 55. Wise choice. (Door 2 seemed to always have a donkey behind it). Excellent 55, Belinda

The sad thing is, love is so often readily available. I think many times it’s just taken for granted.

Loved your 55, Belinda.

You can choose it, or it can choose you, but it’s always a good choice. Nicely built 55.

I believe that to love and to be loved is the most important thing in life.
Really liked your 55.

Great 55! I loved the ending. I’m sucker for happy ending and think choosing love is just such an ending.

While I liked the entire poem, I thought these lines were delightful…
“Chance
mixed with
a touch of hope,
a pinch of good luck,
a dollop of consistency
and a hell of a lot of hard work…”

Even the structure reminds of half of cupcake with a cherry on top. This 55 was a lot of fun:~)

Love conquers all!!….
Or..
You Love has given me thrills, but your love don’t pay my bills!
I love a Romantic choice!
Love your 55 Belinda.
Positive, and upbeat.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

For whatever reason, this reminds me of career women who then marry and have children. And then they choose to stay home, mommy track through life. Many say that it’s detrimental to the progress of women and equality. I am not sure I agree – to choose love as your focus in life is a blessing. Not everyone has choice.

I think love or attraction is also a blind search for someone who does what we don’t, so we can do what they don’t. Sometimes this works perfectly, and sometimes differences get exaggerated.

Life is definitely “all about the love” for me… but sadly not for everyone. For them this is a powerful message. I hope they listen to your wise words. 🙂
