me

People have always said that
——-“you cannot be loved until you love yourself,”
but I have been trying to love myself for years
and I’ve seen people
who love themselves a lot less than me
being loved a lot more than me.
And I don’t know how much longer I can do it;
how much longer I can look in the mirror and say
——–“I do love you,”
because it’s starting to sound more like a lie
than a declaration of truth.
Maybe when I can look into my own eyes,
look at my entire body,
and say,
—-“I hate you,”
I’ll be able to find love more powerful
than what I’ve been giving myself.
Maybe I never truly learned
—–how to love myself in the first place.
