I don’t need you to make me
Then your absence would break me.
The world doesn’t have to validate
All the things that make me great.
To love me is to love everything
That I admire and find alluring.
I am my own, unconditional lover,
To myself only, I will surrender.
My own eyes will find me beautiful.
And to me, that is more meaningful
Than me getting complemented
From people who never meant it.
