I love myself enough,
not just for the both us,
But for the past love I was deprived of,
for the past love no one wanted to give me,
for future love that might leave.
I have learnt to love myself enough
for all the times no one could love me,
for all the moments when I realised all I had was myself.
I’ve learnt to love myself enough to over look my imperfections,
the things I cannot change,
I have learnt to love myself during the cold nights when all I can do is cry,
for the dark days when my body hurts if I move.
I love myself enough to survive,
to know what type of love I deserve,
to know how I should be loved.
I love myself enough to forgive myself,
to look at myself everyday and love myself even more.
I love myself enough.
Because in the end, only I can let myself down,
and only I can pick myself back up.
In the end, I love myself enough
