Self Love Poem

I wrote this while pondering the subject of self-love, I decided to write a love poem to myself based on some experiences I’ve had the past 7 years, here is the results:

I Love Me

I walk through the forest called life as
Daisies blossom against obsidian skies
Feet bare,
and grounded into dirt.

A flame ablaze in the distance,
Heart becomes a reflection.

Darkness fades and lunar energy
Lights the path in front of me.

Do I trust the gods and walk forward?

Or, pivot my flesh to walk back into the night?

The glow brings my eyes to a stupor,

I am spellbound.

I am one with the night and
Dance with the deities.

I am ready for
the shaman’s blessing.

It is time to drift from fright
And fall into the universe’s embrace.

Great Spirit cradles me in a celestial blanket;
As the dusk arrives,
So does the love of the divine.

Another day, another opportunity
For a joyous stroll.
