I decided to love myself
The kind you hear about in books
But this time, I did the work.
I searched inward –
Began to question messages ,
I filled my empty spaces..
I dug out the poison and planted seeds of love.
I was becoming whole.
My mind detoxed;
Who is this talking? Me? You?
My mind raced , I needed my fix ,
I asked myself again ; ‘ is this me? Is this You? ‘
‘ Is this wrong ?’ ‘ Is this right ?’
Again, and again,
A day passed ,
Finally, I knew .
I am who I choose to be , and
I decide what is right.
The road back to myself required my biggest fight,
but my greatest strengths were loving myself
And loving my life.
