Journey to Your Deepest Self

If I Were to Love Myself

If I were to love myself The world would be transformed No feeling inadequate, like I made a mistake No comparing myself to others… no matter what No feeling bad about how others respond to me Their acceptance or not No believing I’ve done anything to be sorry for No feeling like I’ve let anyone down Especially myself Nothing at all wrong with me anymore If I were to love myself. If I were to love myself I’d rejoice in all that I do All that I am I’d know beyond all doubt That I’ve been doing the very best I could For all time And that it’s okay to learn To be more of myself Than I’ve every known before Uncovering the goodness of my being If I were to love myself.

Just For A Moment

Just for a moment Or an afternoon I’d like to be ten again To be sitting in My grandmother’s kitchen Feeling uneasy With the immense serenity Of her place Hearing her tell me I’m a good girl I’m good I’m beautiful I’d believe her If I could I wouldn’t think She’s just saying that Because she’s my grandmother And she’s afraid for me I’d let it come in All the way to my bones Like the rich smells Of espresso and biscotti Like the comforting weight of...
