'validation'

sometimes we look for validation from strangers, only to be disillusioned... When all we have to look for is the love from within and speak love and life into every breath we take--

    First 3 lines so true, wonder why we do that. Last four lines give the consent we need to love ourselves. Lovely insight into the human condition Wilma.

    The attempts to obtain validation from people we don't know often end in disaster, Wilma. If we do not have love in our hearts, it's impossible to form a lasting relationship. You really said a lot in these eight lines, dear, and I love your poem! Love the poet too - Carolyn
