Loving Oneself (Poem)

When he truly loves himself,

 

Accepts himself as he is,

 

Why does he need approval, 

 

From anybody else.

 

If he is secure,

 

The critics don’t matter,

 

He knows where he stands,

 

Controversies don’t last.

 

If he truly loves himself,

 

Then why does he need convincing,

 

To prove to him, only what he can.

 

For if he is secure,

 

Then no words can offend him,

 

And he forgets what’s said.

 

When he truly loves himself, 

 

What do compliments do, 

 

Than reinforce what he knows.

 

And what does criticism do, 

 

If it disagrees with his whole.

 

If he truly loves himself,

 

Why does he need praise,

 

When he praises himself, 

 

And what is disrespect,

 

When he respects himself.

 

If he truly loves himself, 

 

Then there’s no convincing,

 

And no ridicule, 

 

That can make him change.

 

Because he is secure, 

 

In what he knows, 

 

And what others say, 

 

He doesn’t care,

 

For he respects himself, 

 

Above all else.

 

When he truly loves himself,

 

He doesn’t need another,

 

To bring him, only what he can.

 

A lover or a friend,

 

Only reinforces who he is,

 

For he searches himself, 

 

And then the right ones come,

 

And are here to stay. 

 

When he truly loves himself,

 

He doesn’t forget himself,

 

Or where he comes from,

 

Or who he is.

 

Because he is secure, 

 

In what he knows,

 

And he loves himself,

 

Despite what others say.
