Love Knew Me

 I will love instead. The viciousness of hate weighs too

heavy to carry.        

Clambering and tripping through the darkness of anger hurts too many. 

Not another second, minute, hour, or day should be wasted.        

So I’ve decided to love  instead.


Though I barely recognized its essence, love knew me.

It's the tiny speck of light made me smile, so I let it be.

The warmth of joy illuminated in and around me.

Inviting me to continue my journey to heal so I let it be.

Love knew me.


The heavy baggage of the past disappeared.

The bright colors and energy of Life—my life—embraced me.

The decision to be at peace was not taken lightly.

I need, want, and should be here in reality.

Love knew me.

Love patiently waited and never gave up

Unearthing all I have forgotten-that is Self-Love.


I love me. I am worthy. I am enough.


My heart sighed in relief, ready to love, be loved and give love.

I am REady

My Self-Love awaits.
