Love Yourself is one of three winning poetry submissions for last month’s poetry party: How Do I Love Thee? It was submitted by People, Things and Life blogger, Allison Nicole.

Love Yourself

What they say isn’t true.
You don’t need to love yourself
Before someone can love you.

All the things about you that you hate
Your quirks, your fears,
Your hair, or your ears
Someone will love
And find really great.

Sometimes it takes acceptance
From someone else
To accept our flaws
And love our self.
