Start Inside

Valentines,

a gift or a crime?

Lonely hearts

loathe this time

yet it reminds all to strive

to love, start inside.

 

Antonia Sara Zenkevitch

 

A small poem for valentines day, especially for anyone who finds this day a little difficult for whatever reason. Whether or not we have partners or other loved ones, we need to love ourselves too; trite maybe but certainly true. May you all find the love you need.
