Everyday Poem #4

Are your conditions for loving yourself

equal to or lesser than

your conditions for loving others?

Or does your mind

tell your heart

you do not deserve love until you are

smarter

funnier

richer

prettier

healed

employed

skinnier

a better parent

a better child

less serious

more serious

acknowledged

understood

feel less

have more

less yourself and more like others?
