Learning curve of love

She handled herself roughly
harsh bruising words, for
every decision gone wrong
for things she had wanted
but her daring fell short
the mirror reflected failures
showing her paths she didn’t take
regretting over her choices
those now couldn’t be undone

She knew she was worth more
but to herself she couldn’t prove
the mind reminded her of flaws
heart struggling in the dark
against this constant onslaught
she warred with herself thus
some lost badly, some barely won
went on, till one day she understood
the shadows and sunshine make her whole
it is herself, she must learn to love

  1. Your poem so perfectly captured the struggle all of us have with ourselves. Loving oneself isn’t as easy as everyone thinks after all.
    “If you can learn to love yourself and all the flaws, you can love other people so much better. And that makes you so happy.”
