How to find a husband: Inspired by Mahe’s ‘how to find a wife’

read a lot of mighty books

then be an impostor and act like they said you should

get a degree

get a job

make some money in the day

and return home to your pretty self love 

spoil yourself silly

you are only young once 

travel

binge-shop

save for the future and some

until you are ready— soon as you are ready 

close your eyes

make  a wish

on the count of three,

wait for it

just wait, keep your faith

but if nothing happens, count to three again

then wait,

wait with me

let’s both find out where this leads…

  1. How to find a husband
    **
    Travel into books
    Piece together the puzzle
    Find your identity in the pages
    Draw your dream with words
    Send it to the universe
    When you return
    You will find him waiting

    1. I want to believe you,
      and I know I should
      But i am a terrible artist,
      I draw my dreams with a tangy twist.
      It’s scary trying to try again.
      I will just close my eyes and wait.
      😞
