Love Yourself - Poem by Gregory Huyette

LOVE STARTS WITH YOU AND HAS NO END.
IT BEGINS WHEN YOU LOVE YOUR LIFE’S BEST FRIEND.
LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND WHO DO YOU SEE?
HOPEFULLY, YOU’LL SMILE AND WINK PROUDLY.
YOU AND YOUR EGO WILL BE SO MUCH NEARER
WHEN YOU LOVE THAT SMILING FACE IN THE MIRROR.

IF YOU CAN’T SAY “I LOVE MYSELF HUMBLY, ”
THEN YOU CAN’T LOVE OTHERS GENUINELY.
SELF LOVE ISN’T SELFISH NOR IS IT VAIN.
SELF LOVE IS THE FOUNDATION WHICH WILL SUSTAIN
OUR SELFLESS FEELINGS FOR OUR FELLOW MAN
TO HELP THROUGH OUR LIFE AS BEST WE CAN.

WHAT DO CLOUDS FEEL IF YOU HAVE’NT FLOWN?
YOU CAN’T REFLECT LOVE IF YOU CAN’T FEEL YOUR OWN.
YOU CAN’T ENJOY THAT BOOK ON THE LIBRARY SHELF,
IF YOU’VE NEVER LEARNED TO READ YOURSELF.
NOR CAN YOU APPRECIATE A FOREIGN TONGUE
WITHOUT LEARNING WORDS FROM ITS VERY FIRST RUNG.

HEARING BUT NOT KNOWING A WORD. SO IT IS WITH LOVE.
AVOID ABANDONING IT WITH AN EMOTIONAL SHOVE.
FIRST LEARN WHAT IT IS; UNDERSTAND HOW TO USE IT…
START WITH YOURSELF AND NO ONE ELSE WILL LOSE IT.
