by Jess s about a year ago in love poems

An attempt at poetry. Kinda.


For years I have let the opinions of others dictate my worth.For years I have let the attention and affection of men dictate my happiness.For years I have felt less than.For years I have felt ugly and overlooked.For years I have wanted nothing more than to be lovedwhile thinking I don't deserve it.

That stops now.I am better than this.I am beautifulI am boundless.I am worth more than the pseudo love of a manand I do not need someone else to make me happy.

I am my own happiness, my own joyand no one will ever take that from me.Some day someone worth MY time will come alongand maybe I will let them inand maybe I will share with them all the things that make me a woman.

I like to write but suffer from chronic writer's block. I like spooky, gory scary things....and I also like dogs.
