Note To Self On A Cold Night

exhale.

feel your chest rise

then fall.

the world goes on.

it does not disappear when

you

close your eyes.

you are not responsible for

everybody

or their feelings

or their futures

or their hurt

do not

blame yourself

secretly

for the actions of others

remember to

love yourself first

and make it your mantra

to know what

you need

as well as others.

begin each day

with love

in your heart

and a head full of

possibilities

because they’re so great

and you are

so

great

power runs through you

like electricity

but too high a current

blows

the fuse.

exhale.

start again.

and this time

remember to

love

yourself first.
