And I Loved Myself – A Poem

And suddenly

I fell in love.

Not with others,

But with myself.

I learned to love me

And the parts of me

That I didn’t like.

Early on, I knew that

I was my only home.

If I couldn’t love me properly

I wouldn’t have found peace within.

I knew that,

Everyday would be a battle.

Then, I took baby steps

Until I mastered self-love.

And suddenly

I fell in love

With my height,

My skin,

My personality,

And my flaws

Until I was completely

In love with every single cell

That make up who I am.
