2-15-2011 poems: Loving Yourself, Richard

2-15-2011 — Loving Yourself

Learning to love yourself

Is not the greatest love of all.

(Sorry, Whitney Houston)

But if properly processed,

Understood,

It is crucial.

I look at myself

And see things I’d love to change.

Where do I even begin?

My hazel eyes to blue.

My big nose.

My height

My weight

My body, my mannerisms

My style

My listening, attentiveness

My introverted ways.

The things best described in an orange band

Or

A yellow band with multi-colored puzzle pieces.

The thing that makes me cringe

And makes me wonder if…?

There are two ways

To resolve this.

Give to God

The things you can and must change.

And be content

With what you cannot change.

What you must change,

Do not leave it up to a

Future girlfriend,

Fiancée,

Spouse.

2-15-2011 — Richard

Relying on God

I fear nothing.

Christ is my Savior.

His death, burial

And resurrection

Reveal God’s

Divine love for me.
