She Learned to Love Herself

Updated: Dec 31, 2018

She’d always lose

When she put herself last

She realized

That trying to be something or someone else

Wasn’t worth it

The price

And she had had enough

Of betraying herself

On her path of self-discovery

She’d notice




And she’d think

I love that

About myself

But then she’d also observe

Things she didn’t like as much

Old habits would arise

Shadows would surface

She'd think, if I could just change this one thing

Like looking in a mirror

She saw

She had shunned

These parts because

She had learned

They were bad

She decided she would


What was previously unacceptable

Like an honored guest

It took work

And time

But she realized

That she was loveable


As she was

And that

Those parts she learned

Along the way

Were wrong

Were actually
