When you don't love yourself , every thing start to seem with no meaning
And when you love yourself , life start to be  appealing
And opportunities start to appear on the ceiling
Yeah that's  quite of a good feeling
I look through myself and in poetry i find  me drowning
Maybe i should write a poem about me 
 then i might love the one in the mirror i see
I hated my sweaty hands till i wrote a poem about them
I hated my anxieties and insecurities till in my poems i read about them
I hated my imperfections and flows till i wrote about them
Maybe one day I'll love me better if i were in a  poem 
I'll sink myself between the lines
And in the metaphors I'll seek rescue
I'll hide myself between the commas 
And let it to the reader to look for me
I'll glorify myself through capitalization 
I'll spoil me through playing with punctuation 
And in the end i won't let a period stop me
I have been lost and in poetry i found me
Made me wonder about the person i want to be 
A couple of letters and random thoughts saved me
Made me transcend and all my problem started to bend the knee 
Yes indeed poetry did saved me
