Love Yourself

Clickbait society
Where likes and shares and such
Are central to the mindsets
Of those who yearn so much
For approval from all others
Over knowing their true worth
Abandoning self reliance
Whilst failing to unearth
A hidden gem that lies within
With dopaminergic zest
Called intrinsic satisfaction
Of yourself who knows you best

Self

A fettered self beholden to
The whims of others folk
Will render fulfilment debunked
Empty and rather broke

For living for extrinsic might
To be ‘in’ at all cost
Will cast one out of their own self
And leave them feeling lost

For though gregarious to all
The outside world they seem
Inside they’re shrivelled, lonely hearts
Hurt, craving more esteem

And so my prayer for these dear folk
Is one where they will see
Their true worth based in who they are
Less who they try to be

For deep within, a rainbow’s end
Lies hidden out of sight
Where the elixir they crave
Rests quietly day and night

Shhhhhhh

And yet it is the small still voice
The whisper deep within
That is forever our guiding compass
The subtle beat that resonates in our heart
Flooding the senses with acuity
Submerging the soul in the waters of conviction
That navigates the harsh winds of chaos
And despite all the seeking
All enquiry
It is in quiet solitude that we find
That we discover who we are
