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?

Maybe this could be an inspiring one too:) [I've posted here several times, I felt this poem and its wisdom are very applicable for today's situation and personal growth~]

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~
