if you don't
hate yourself
at least a little bit
someone else will
be perfectly willing
to do it for you

if you have
grown accustomed
to your self-hate
you may become
oblivious to it
and others will have
nothing but praise for you
and such close proximity
to the mirror image
of your perceived self
causes discomfort

love is free
but it's hard to give away
I need
some good advice
or for time to keep me moving
keep everything moving forward
like it always does

the warmth that is inside my chest
tingles my ribcage
and I feel
so strangely human
I can hardly stand it
it paralyzes me sometimes

I stood alone
in the middle of
a bamboo grove
and just listened
I heard the leaves dance in the wind
and knew what it meant
(nothing really)

so why not?
