Self Love

How do you love someone

Someone you know at their core


The ins and outs, good and bad

You know every thought and desire


You stand in judgement

Ready and waiting to sentence


A closed position

Verdict decided prior to presentation of evidence


Innocence before guilt

No need to conquer


The gavel is a gift

An opportunity for pardon


What is the why?

Your heart of hearts knows


This poem is about: 
My family
My community
My country
Our world



"Life isn't for the faint of heart. For those who dare take it on, everything awaits."
