understanding thyself

 

Timing is everything

She was great, incredible actually

But I wasn't ready

Before you can love others

One must love themselves

But how can one love themselves

When they don't know themselves;

 

I talked big game

I fell into old habits

Old habits of being in love

But I didn't love her

I lead her astray

Hurting her in the process;

 

As much as it hurt her

I learnt a lesson

And I need to learn

As learning is the first step,

In knowing yourself

So that one day I can love again

Myself, and others.
