Learn to Love Yourself

Learn to Love Yourself

A Poem by stargirl23

mom you need to learn to love yourself

it's driving me crazy

do it for me

I've been hearing of your suffering thirty minutes away

you take your lessons from God

well he built the universe around himself

so build yours too

make it you-centric

others can be there too--

I know what God says

but I believe there is doubt

and if you turn out to be wrong

you'll regret sharing the center--

so please learn to love yourself

brother’s been missing each night, placing on you worry

but he's having fun

dads been traveling and smells sweeter with each return

you're hurt though

and I've been thirty minutes away

with this new life that I've made

this is exactly why I didn't go

I was worried, but you said go

but it's too late to come back now

it's too late

I'm coming back next Christmas

I'll see to you then

I'll see to you then

until then, learn to love yourself

please do it for me

you've been driving me insane

Thank you so much!!!
Mothers are selfless. They sacrifice everything for their children. A mother is her child's first teacher. She doesn't sleep until her child does and she doesn't it until her child does. Even though many people neglect their parents when they grow young, but parents never think ill of their child, they are always there for him. This is a very nice poem. Keep writing.

Thank you, I will!
That's how mothers are. They have no life of their own. Their happiness revolves around their children and husband.
This is a very heart felt write Adi.
God bless you.

Thank you :)
I so relate to this but you know, as much as we worry and wish things were different, we do have to live our own path also. It can seem so hard at times and not without guilt but is the right thing to do. A most honest and reflective piece Adi, I wish you well :)
