When I began my search
for the woman within,
I longed to be loved by someone.

When I began to love myself-
unconditionally-I longed to wake
to a new day!

With every new day came the
peace of mind I had searched
and longed for.

Now I see others searching,
I have the desire to tell them of my journey.
My words fall into the darkness.

Why is it we search outside ourselves
for something so precious?
I choose not to give another this power
to love me or not to love me on a whim.

Before beginning the search to find love,
I had to nurture this fragile heart and soul
deep within, only then did I find true love.
