As the Day goes By.

Every morning

I remind myself

My opinion is the only one that matters.

Love myself

Respect myself

Be myself and I will be

Happy.

 

Every day

I find myself

Striving to find

Approval from you

Being slim

Being smart

Being anything you want

So I can feel

Loved.

 

Every night

I cry to myself

Alone in the dark.

I find it hard to love myself

When those who matter

Can’t.

Why should I respect myself?

When those close to me

Can’t.

These feelings, this burden

I just wish I was

Free.

 

Midnight comes

And I find myself

Staring at the wall.

I tell myself

That I love myself

My love

Is all that needs to matter.

My love

Can set me free.
