Back Then, I Used To Love Myself So Much

Back Then, I Used To Love Myself So Much

A Poem by Brenden Taylor

Back then, I used to love myself so much,

I thought I was the only one around;
a mountain that would only focus down
on surfaces of water I can’t touch
and using my reflection as a crutch
to hold myself in loneliness and drown

alone, without a single mourning sound

from “friends” - if I could even call them such.

But now, I’ve set my heart on things above
and relish in the sunlight of my Lord

with brethren that were lonely, just like me;

we welcome every ray of holy love

and celebrate our God in one accord
together - mountains in a range beside the sea.
