some kind of self-love

i have found to be
that love is not
as cruel as people
make it out to be.

that although
painful, it is
worthwhile
to have love.

the love that
you have for
yourself,
within
y o u r s e l f .

the love for
yourself
that carries you
and takes you
across oceans.

a type of self-love
that no one can
take away,
no matter who
comes along.

a love for
yourself
that is worth
breathing in
and living.

a self-love that
you will wade for.

  2. Beautiful! There is so much truth to these words. Self-love is soooo critical– it makes me sad when people can’t attain it, or elect not to. 😦 I hope that anyone who reads this and lacks self-love will come to a realization that they need to work for it. Love is so important.
