If I take any insults I've held on to
& throw them down a well that I shut close,
they don't disappear 
but they starve for attention. 
I show them I power my thoughts into verbs, 
I let in light. The language I choose to keep, 
the words I choose to hear in my head, affect me.
I need to treat myself as a friend. 
If I wouldn't say what I say to myself 
to anyone else, I should reconsider the messages. 
& if I feel as though I'm neglecting myself, 
I need to remember me. 
I should be more loving to myself 
& more curious
like I want to  
impress myself.
