Loving yourself

She loved herself, And the world did not love her for it. Her radiance shone bright, And the world eclipsed her light. She flew so high, And the world clipped her wings. She sang aloud soulful songs, And the world muted the melody. She dreamed to dream, And the world shattered her reverie. She smiled… Continue reading Loving yourself
