Loving is easy
Being loved seems impossible,
People have asked how can you love another
Without loving yourself?
But I have loved and can’t comprehend
How to even start loving myself,
I am not worth enough of the attention,
Although I try
and whisper words of good faith
All I hear is a wail in the dark
A silent message ringing clear
I am not made to be loved
But maybe I hope
I be made for loving.
Finding how to love yourself as you love others ©️2021 Jana Pelzom
This was a darker poem but I wanted it to have a silver lining. Some people are too self critical and no matter how much love we are shown we don’t think we deserve it and I wonder who decides what worth love is?
