Mirror Love

Awesome poem !!!

Heartstring Eulogies

“I have never once looked in the mirror
and said, ‘I love you.’
I think it’s long overdue.”

I have never once looked in the mirror and said, “I love you.” Perhaps I was afraid I didn’t deserve it. Or maybe there just was no point. But there is. And the more I think about it, the more I’ve realized that I do. I do love myself. After everything my body and mind did to protect me and keep the good alive — along with the hope. I survived. That is something worth loving — especially since that person is me.

I think it’s long overdue,
don’t you think?
