"will you allow your heart to love your self... the way you love others so easily"... the question I ask of me...
butterfly as always I relate to your words so much...yes self love and self esteem can be so hard to come by... especially if it was taken away from us early on by the people who are suppose to give it to us... I understand, hugs to ya... take care, jm
and you can say baby... baby can I hold you tonight maybe if told you the right words... at the right time, you'd be mine... baby can I hold you tonight... tracy chapman
A Romantic Heart
Forever In Your Heart
BUTTERFLY, this is so BEAUTIFUL!...so many of us have been hurt by "love"....We may have only gotten "bad love"....but we sure know how to give "the best kind of love".... i'm sure one day we will all find the love that you speak of.
take care **hug** Broken Wings

Wings, After reading your own beautiful poetry it means so much to hear your comments. And I agree, sometimes I wonder if I would know real love if it bit me in the.....well you get the idea *Angel wing hugs with the glow of halos to light your way in the darkness*
Whatever strength I add to myself becomes my greatest weakness, while whatever weakness I'll consciously endure will be replaced with a strength that is not my own. G. Finley

Butterflies...I don't know how but I almost missed this one, that would have been my loss. I will echo the thoughts of everyone else and say that you write so very well indeed my friend. Strange how sometimes the love that should come so easily is so hard to find....

Butterflies, wonderful piece, my friend! I, too, have waded through the miasma of life, searching for self-esteem. It's a journey - not a destination. But, it helps when you have wonderful traveling companions like all of the great folks here! Thanks for sharing - it touched me!
Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all. This is a beautiful poem, Butterflies. A pleasure to read. Thank you for sharing suc an important fact of life in such a wonderful way with Passions.
Lots of love and hugs, Lizzie
