Love I

Justifying hateful thoughts, letting others sink their talk
Useless looking in the mirror, when the reflection won't come nearer
Sitting on so many cries; i'm so fat, i'm so ugly, how is it that a person will want me?
Tilting opinion to a right; not everyone can please your sight

Let me in, let me out, show me confidence, push out doubt
Over repeat to yourself: How can one love you if you don't love yourself?
View out the media and suck in your power; If you know it you'll walk like a tower
Erase self agression and draw out strength; no one hurts more than yourself

Make it with in your heart and you will flow out through your mind
Easy loving, time is humming, go and grow your pride!

    I like the meaning behind this poem about learning to beleive in yourself, Jessica. Most of the good things in life don't happen when you're down on yourself. In order to live the life you truley desire, you have to beleive you deserve it. Once you do, the rest is much easier.
