Love Thyself


Love thyself

The very heart known most


Of bubbling brooks brimming with joy

Of carved caverns colored with doubt

Of starry skies sparkling with wishes

Each crevice and cobweb and spot and sprout

Love thyself.

Richest kindness, waters rising up within


O'er the reddened edges of a live and beating heart

To shower upon all others

To love another in deepest manner

Love thyself.
