Treasure Island

John Doe

(1970-06-05 / Johannesburg)

Love yourself and love will find you

Love yourself and love will find you

So the question begs
Do you like yourself
Do you look in the mirror and believe
Believe that your are special
A special being

The question is
Do we believe others or ourselves
Unfortunately we tend to listen to others
Take their words of pain upon our hearts
Let it haunt our dreams and thoughts

So we ask ourselves
Why do we do this
Why do we let others decide our belief in ourselves
If the answer is right in front of us
How can we not see

Life is a confusing entity
It what make us humans
We feel
We love
we cry
And we hate

So I ask the question again
Do we love ourselves before we love others
No we don’t
As if we did
I believe we would be truly happy

So to find the key to loving
Not others
But ourselves
Then we can find love
And therefore find ourselves

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
