My power within

I've read the poems I used to write,
"all love is lost,
where's my mister right?"

I looked between the rocks, and trees,
I searched up high,
and sought for keys.

I loved and lost, so many times,
I cried and wondered
Why I must be so blind?

I finally reached a point inside,
Where I started to question
what I needed to find.

I discovered a thing, it was never there!
I found it, and groomed it,
I started to care!

I found that when I put myself,
above your needs,
and everything else,

The men come tumbling down in streams,
and then in buckets,
and in my dreams.

I've learned to love myself this year,
the greatest gift,
I'll ever keep.
  
I still haven't found my mister right,
but I now I have a gift,
I hold in my sleep!

Yes Tulip, I've heard that before too. If you don't learn to love yourself, no one will. Well, I'm still learning, but I'm glad that you've learnt it right. So now you juz have to wait for Mr Right. He'll come soon enough.
