As I sit on my bed binging on cookies,
I msg my friends and ask them,
"Do you think I need to date again?"
Some say yes, some say maybe.
A wiser one says no not maybe.
You feel empty, you feel low,
You need to sit with yourself and say hello.
Take vacations, leave back your phone,
Will you enjoy your own company if ur alone?
Then I hang up the phone and lie on my bed,
I open the notes and write some text,
He can take me out, oh we can makeout,
Singing in the rain, dancing without shame,
Compliments overflow, love bites that show,
Am I happy I'm accepted or I'm happy cos I'm loved by another?
Love is a gift I need to give myself,
Not his love, not hers, not theirs,
I am perfect, I complete me,
I accept myself whole-heartedly.
I need to grow without his push,
I need to know there's no rush.
Resilience is key, fret not lady,
Love is all you need,
Your love, your own love.
