I sometimes want to ask

Why don’t you love yourself?

Is it that hard to see?


All that anyone had ever said;

Why, has it brought you so low

That only a critical eye

Was the perspective to be viewed?


I’d hope that you’d see

Some beauty

A semblance of understanding;

But granted, with a focal point distorted,

You’ll have to refocus

To make out anything.


To love others,

I’ve heard you’re to love

Yourself first,

But really,

It’s self-acceptance

That should do the talking.



I’ve missed two posts. So this is me making up. Sorry for slacking so hard, guys.
