I thought that, for so long I needed the love from another

Not realizing I needed that from within myself

I believed for so long that the deep connections from others

Would become the supplements to my health

For so long I craved the attention and affections of those that rejected me

In hopes that I’ll feel the warmth of love

Not realizing that those inner gates were locked away,

And destroying my inner wealth

I sought out love in places that didn’t deserve my attention

And it tore apart my soul

Now as I repair my ravaged heart.

I reconcile with myself,

For I didn’t know better,

And now I can move forward

Without the desire to be recognized by anyone else
