Love Yourself The Way You Love Him

Mikayla Herrick

I wish you would love yourself
the way you love him
the kind of love that is patient & tender
aware of your imperfections
& wrapping them in compassion
instead of disdain
I wish you would speak to yourself
the way you speak to him
in a soft tone that holds respect
speaking only the words that are true
thinking thoughts that are born of kindness
I wish you would look at yourself
the way you look at him
with adoring admiration
that communicates pure devotion
steadfast in your capability
I wish you would believe in yourself
the way you believe in him
seeing yourself as the hero of your story
strong & powerful, you hold your head high
telling yourself itโ€™s okay, if you fail
you deserve the love that you give him
to the one that does not love you
like you love him
take that love
& give it to yourself TC mark
