    Here is a poem I wrote. I hope it inspires you to love yourself more! :)


    News media showing happiness is in sight

    1st world problems of pressure of success

    Equivalent to hamster in a wheel getting no rest

    No wonder we can’t sleep at night



    We will never measure up, believe me

    Politicians, teachers, allies don’t deceive me

    But I will tell you what really grieves me

    These lies that my self love never frees me



    Love your church

    Honor every doctor and nurse

    Give to charities

    But donations to self is in scarcity



    Society is a corrupt force

    Making your delusions worse

    We’re told to love ourselves is a crime

    It’s arrogant and vain like grime



    Jury duty, taxes, pay rent, so many demands

    Colleagues, parents, siblings, so many shaking hands

    But when you turn over on your side at night

    Do you ever make it right?

    I love that video! Exactly what I needed to hear today! So thank you. Did you create that video by chance? I’ll check out the other things too.

    Hi,
    Glad that you love that video. No~, I just searched internet and wanted to find a good/effective "presentation" of CC's poem, then came up this one (I think it is a good making for sure)~ but in general, I love how words/visual/music could go together to have a more peaceful, contemplative "synergy" which is soothing and nutritious to our soul, or at least the psychological/emotional well being~
