My great demise;

If you don’t already know, well now you do
you will never accept love
you will never feel love
or learn the proper way to [love]
if you cannot first love
yourself

forestall the self inflicted sarrow
learn to hold your own heart
and when you look towards tomorrow
I hope you do not wait for someone else’s regard
but paint yourself into the sunset
so when the night lays thickly upon you
and heavily you may lamely be
you may close your eyes and not wish for someone else to have you
for you have become your own life’s master artistry

thus the day will dawn
when you have made your own heart whole
and when you finally exchange yours for another’s
you will not feel as though you’ve lost your soul
but as though a flower would- freshly planted in the young summer dirt
