153

I’ve spent childhood believing
that there’s this idyllic destination
where the people are kind
and the world doles out only
what you can handle
that there’s some supreme being
making decisions that are
what’s best for me

but I’m learning lately that
looking out for yourself
is the only guarantee that you’re cared for
that there are no other more capable hands
to manifest what the future holds for me
than mine.

  2. Bingo! You can’t best take care of others unless you take care of yourself first. It also makes it a helluva lot easier on someone ho might want to “take care” of you. Self-love isn’t about being selfish. I have spoken… Cheers (masked, because I give a damn) Mark
