[1: 1,559 of 10,000] Loving Thyself

In Article, Poem on August 15, 2015 at 4:11 AM
Self-EsteemHere is an excerpt from the poem “Love After Love” by Derek Walcott which for me is a reflection that within me is I who knew exactly how to truly love me –
You will love again
the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, 
to the stranger who has loved you all your life, 
whom you ignored for another,
who knows you by heart.
We often forget to recognise the beautiful and perfect spirit within us that we get clouded by the chaos of the world. Yet it knows and it waits for our true self will never abandon us, to keep loving us even when we ignor it.
May we have the courage to choose ourselves! Because when we love ourselves then we are more capable of loving others.
