Poems of Love: You

They say you’ll know when it’s true love
But I say you won’t
You won’t see it, you won’t know it
And you’ll continue to wonder why it feels different.

Why it feels new; fresh like morning dew
Why, finally after all these years
You feel like.
You.

Ironic, indeed, Love’s ways.

You’ll be stuck in a chase; bound,
To find the best of you
For the best of whom you’ve found.

— Gunjan Sethi

Large

It’s me under these puffy eyes
Under the skin that’s grown fat
Cold hearted; what are you made of
Frozen in ice?

It’s me under the spots on my cheeks
Inside these large jackets
Hiding my insecurities
Beautiful; can you see?

I’ll find myself again, again, again

Won’t look at my feet anymore
Straight into your eyes
Puff up my chest, won’t hide
Trim myself, and then you’ll see

If that’s what beautiful means to you, baby
You’ll find me, you’ll find me.

Does your Heart have a Place for Yourself?

While I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, I found this image. Such a beautifully written piece of work about how every single human must find a place for themselves in their hearts!

It’s about time all of us realize the beauty within ourselves. Not only realize, but also cherish it! Regardless of how many people are trying to put you down, step forward and rise. Look above the haze and show them that your love for yourself cannot be injured by them.

So keep loving yourself, and I promise you’ll have a billion candles on your cake. ❤

The Mask

Masks can be dangerous. Very dangerous.
We all will eventually become what we pretend to be.
When you’re alone, in the dark, peer through the crepuscular atmosphere around you and find yourself.
This is where you will feel, the real you. When no soul is in vicinity of yours, your mind will think, you. It will think your thoughts. Your own.
You will sit there, talking to yourself. And loving yourself.
But wait! Are you unable to do that? Are you unable to talk to your inner self? Unable to love yourself?

Has the mask walked you away, too far, from your very own soul?
Why did you let this happen, honey? It was so gradual, you didn’t even realize!
Always remember, from now on, the most important meeting you have is with yourself. The most beautiful moments you spend are with your body. The most interesting person to talk to is, yourself. It’s you.

It’s time you take the mask off.
It’s time you meet yourself.
It’s time you love yourself.
Once again.

Young, Wild and Free ~

She woke up one morning. Walked into her balcony. The sun was gleaming through the chilly morning wind, right into her eyes.
The sparkle.
The dance in those eyes said to her,
You, my girl, are young. You are wild. You are free. Don’t you ever let anything make you feel any less powerful!
You must be your own hero. You must be strong and lift that head high while you walk through the crowd.
They’re going to say you’re fat or too thin, you’re too dark or too fair, you’re too tall or too short, you’re too shy or too slutty, but hey! What does your heart say to you?
Listen to it. Very carefully.
Maybe close your eyes.
It’s tells you how magnificent you are! It says that no matter what you want to achieve, you are going to!
Yes. You’re going to look. Aim. And shoot.
Bullseye!
There’s nothing you can’t achieve. Nothing.
Don’t let fate write in the book of your life. Step out, step forward, and carve your future. It’s never too late, never too early. The setting is always right.

She took a long breath.
This was the best conversation of her life.

Hey, you!

Hey, you! Yeah, you right there, reading this!

Do you know how beautiful you are?

Let me tell you.

You’re sitting right there with a heart, a mind, a soul, a body, that is a marvellous creation of Mother Nature. When she crafted you, she made sure you were perfect. She made sure you were beautiful. She made sure you were so magnificent, that even if the world went blind, you would have hundreds fallen for you.

Yes honey, that’s how gorgeous you are.

Take your make up off
Let your hair down
Take a breath
Look into the mirror, at yourself
Don’t you like you?
Cause I like you!

-Try, Colbie Caillat
