At one point in my life I tried to write poetry. Here is the only piece that I ever felt comfortable posting on the internet:
Love of Self
“Normalize the phrase, ‘I love myself’.
Let it become second nature, rolling off of your bleeding tongue until it is all that you know.
Etch that phrase into your brain and let it reside in you as your flowers begin to bloom.
Such a foreign concept- but with every breath that enters and leaves your soul, mark it with the simple phrase,
‘I love myself’
Eventually, you will.”
