Love Yourself

I can't promise love
That from myself seek
That same acceptance,
That same forgiveness,
That same inner peace

I can't offer
What I don't own
And cannot give
Even myself.

I can't share
Tenderness -
True passion

Without
Loving

Me...

    Precisely !! Not always easy to do that though. If we could get that right, our acceptance of others could flow from a place of confidence. Enjoyed this one.

    VERY good way to do this one. Hope I can do it as well as this.

    There is such a wise person behind these words. Loving oneself, and forgiving oneself, is too often overlooked, and can actually be the answer to a life filled with blessings and happiness. What a great theme for this contest! Well done!
