To Love Yourself

Don’t let anyone
say there is no way
for you to do what
you truly want. Go
do that thing today.

Read a book, see
a show; visit
a place you meant
one day to go.

Make yourself
happy. This
you must do.

Each day -

    A wonderful poem! I like this form, I have read a couple today- are they for a contest? And about my poetry, I took a lot of it down, I explained in one of my blogs if you are inclined to know why. But I will certainly be working towards posting new work when I have more time on my hands! Hugs. :)

    Self loathing only goes so far. Just ask that poor shmuck at the bar. If he'd stayed home and not got drunk. Just imagine what he might have thunk.
