Love Yourself

First, you arrived
With a cry so loud
A slap or two settled you in peace
It’s love that forced the skies to receive your shine
So, settle your thoughts
Treat your mind before projecting
Heal your wounds before sharing
The heat of your heart must be right
Else it’ll burn anyone within reach
To love, to protect, exists in those tightened hands
It exists in that locked hatred
It’s just waiting to escape, like a dove: free
So let it be, let it free
So it may rest on your shoulder: calm
And then when the day’s right
And the sun’s out
Love unchained from you to all might be born
Never missing a step when finding another torn soul
Never wasting time to heal another wary heart
So put that troubled thought down on the table
And treat yourself to a good whole time
