I saw it on your face
Transported to childhood
Where I wasn’t good enough
Daggers of disappointment
Reach into my heart
I can’t blame you this time
I’m not proud of me right now
The stench of self-loathing
A far cry from the fragrance of self-love
The only promise I can make
To continue on the path of self-discovery
And with this, learning to love myself
For only with love and self-respect
Will I be able to treat myself right
