Learning to “Like” Myself

It’s hard to “like” myself,

hard to promote me to me,

harder to look inward and not overanalyze:


What am I saying?

How does it sound?

Who now thinks I’m a self-centered prick?


Hard to express emotions

not as a bid for sympathy

but as a way of promoting myself

to myself, for myself.


Because I want to “like” myself.

I want to LOL and YASSSSS!!!

And I wanna give myself a thumbs up,

a high five—a smiley face!


Because I deserve it.

I deserve to “like” myself;

I deserve to be my biggest follower.
