Embrace of Self

In the quietude of dawn's embrace,
I find a gentle, knowing space,
Where love from deep within does glow,
A self-love that begins to grow.

With every breath, like whispers soft,
My heart unfolds, aloft it’s loft,
Esteem takes root, begins to thrive,
Within, I feel so much alive.

No mirror’s gaze nor shadow’s doubt,
Can snuff the light that shines throughout,
For loving self is purest art,
A masterpiece within the heart.



Reflection's Whisper



Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Reflect my soul, blemishes and all,
Show the strength that lies within,
Glimpses of love that never dim.

Guide me in embracing flaws,
Unwinding hurt’s tight, knotted gauze,
Let self-love cleanse old wounds so deep,
And promises to myself I'll keep.

In reflection’s whisper, I comprehend,
Self-love's journey, there's no end,
Boundless, it grows, without any measure,
Each moment spent, a newfound treasure.



Within the Garden



Within my heart, a garden lies,
Where self-respect and love arise,
Amidst the flowers, bright and fair,
Self-admiration perfumes the air.

Self-love roots down, and branches reach,
For skies of worth that extend and teach,
Each petal unfurls, a story told,
Of inner grace that breaks the mold.

Tend the garden, day by day,
Pulling doubts and fears away,
In the soil of confidence to delve,
The most beautiful blooms are love of self.



River of Inner Pose



Flowing like a river within,
Self-love's journey does begin,
Winding through the heart's landscape,
Its waters, insecurities escape.

In its current, reflections dance,
Offering the soul a second chance,
To bathe in streams of gentle grace,
Where fears submerge and hopes embrace.

Journey long through inner bends,
Where the river’s song on love depends,
Coursing through the life I chose,
With self-love, the river flows.



Mountain of Might



Upon the mountain, tall and steep,
My inner strengths are mine to keep,
Steadfast in love for whom I am,
Unshaken like the strongest dam.

Within the crags and rocky height,
Self-love’s flame burns ever bright,
Casting light on doubts to scatter,
Affirming what truly matters.

Ascend the peak with heart in hand,
Overlooking the vast, wondrous land,
From this mountain of pure insight,
Behold the power of self-love's might.



Galaxy of Grace



In the galaxy within my mind,
Stars of self-love are not hard to find,
Brightly shining, they light the way,
Turning darkest night into day.

Orbits of confidence circle 'round,
In cosmic dance, without a sound,
Each thought, a planet of potential,
Love for oneself, quintessential.

Let self-love be the sun that glows,
In this universe, where acceptance flows,
A galaxy of grace set in space,
Where every star, my soul, does trace.



Ocean of Serenity



Deep within, there lies an ocean,
Waves of self-love set in motion,
Each tide that comes, a soothing balm,
Ensuring my spirit remains calm.

Harbored boats of thought embark,
Seeking light when seas are dark,
Navigating through self-doubt,
Self-love's compass points them out.

In this ocean, vast and wide,
I swim with self-esteem as guide,
Buoyed by waves of inner clarity,
I am at peace, in serenity.



Seasons of the Soul



As the seasons turn outside my door,
My soul cycles through much more,
In winter's chill and summer's heat,
Self-love remains a feat complete.

The springtime of my self-regard,
Makes growth from cold times not so hard,
And autumn's fall, with leaves of gold,
Sheds the fears that I once hold.

In changing times, one thing is sure,
My love for self remains pure,
Through seasons pass, I'm whole and whole,
In the harmonious cycle of the soul.



Canvas of Color



My heart, a canvas of color and hue,
Painted with self-love genuine and true,
A masterpiece of personal lore,
Each stroke a tale of battles I bore.

Blues of sorrow, reds of strength, merge,
In the palette where self-worth does surge,
Greens of growth and golds of pride,
No shade of love do I let hide.

This tapestry of the heart's creation,
Sprung from self-love's own foundation,
Hangs within, for me to see,
Beauty in authenticity.



Harmony’s Melody



Self-love's melody plays within,
A symphony that's poised to begin,
Strings of heart with drum's soft beat,
Make the chorus of life complete.

Each note sings of understanding,
In the score, no demand, no commanding,
Melodies harmonize in the soul,
With self-respect to make me whole.

Hear the music, let it resound,
In the space where peace is found,
In life’s concert, I play my part,
With the rhythm of a loving heart.
