Tuesday Poetry: Daily Mantra

I like myself I love myself – 
I deserve good things – 

I said this to myself
While looking in the mirror
I didn’t expect the tears

I like myself I love myself – 
I deserve good things – 

Saying something nice and
Positive sounds so foreign
So strange

I like myself I love myself – 
I deserve good things –

I don’t know if I believed
Myself the first time I said it
I don’t think I will
For a long time

But I try to keep saying it

From the poetry collection Cats, Coffee, Catharsis.
