all people, first, must love themselves

before accepting love
or they will be unbalanced
by emotion's push and shove
.
you'd think we'd strive for what we want
but some just lack the nerve
and so they settle for the love
they think that they deserve
.
some other love themselves so much
they find they fall in love
and they can find no equals
for they sit so high above
.
this attitude is risky
loving no one but yourself
you'll never find true knowledge
as the lone book on the shelf
.
so seek the love of others
as they search for love in you
but also find the patience
that will help to get you through
.
for life's a winding highway
when in doubt, just hug the curve
respect yourself and hold out
for the love that you deserve
