Loving Yourself

Take a look into the mirror,
Really take a hard look.
Do you see her?
She’s an important person.
She’s you and she’s me.
For a moment,
Forget about being there
For other people.
You need to be there
For yourself.
People, they come
And go. They leave
And some of them
Never come back.
But there will be
One person with you
Every day and that’s
Yourself. You can be
The only one to pick
Yourself up when
You’re surrounded
By darkness.
She’ll see your
Worth and
Even when nobody
Else sees it.
She’ll be there
When you’re feeling
Ugly and alone.
She reminds you
To be good to yourself.
She gets you over
The pain and heartbreak.
She’s the one
To give you a pep talk.
She gets you over
The bumps in the road.
She’ll be there to
Remind you to breathe.
She helps you find yourself.
She’ll tell you to
Let it all go.
She’ll be the shoulder
To cry on. She’ll be the
One to crack a smile
Or a joke.
Don’t let her leave
You behind
And most importantly
Take care of her because
You need each other.
She’s much more
Than a part of you.
Don’t forget that.
She’s the mind,
The heart, soul
And the true essence
Of everything.
She’s fearless.
She’s unapologetic.
She’s tough. She’s
A fighter. She’s kind.
She’s gentle.
Give her love. She’s
The one who deserves it
Just as much as
Everybody else does.
Loving her and
Letting her live are
The best things
To do for her
And for yourself.
There, she’ll survive
And thrive.
She’ll bloom and
You’ll never
Regret anything.
She’s your best friend.
She’ll help you more
Than anything or
Anybody else.
