love yourself

September 20, 2009


I have learned to love myself

The importance of my story

To have insight you must know

All about yourself


That will take understanding

Of your personality

In seeking wisdom I found

A surprising joy


Good information 

From trustworthy resources

Makes a difference


I looked for models

For those who celebrate life

Who don’t live in fear


In searching I found

Good people who love themselves

They’re the best givers


When you love yourself

You can “get over yourself”

See through new glasses


A seed in the ground

When it’s properly cared for 

Bears beautiful fruit

A life that’s cared for 

When it is buried in love

Bears beautiful fruit
