may not have a house,
or anything that’s valuable,
other than myself.
so I fought hard to protect myself.
who tried to take my value away from me.
Just like how people lock their house,
or lock their car,
I also lock myself.
Because with all my strength and weakness,
I am valuable.
Even when no one admit it,
I’m still valuable.
The science of loving myself means
to put the importance of myself above any materialistic things,
I don’t choose to chase after money
if I have to sacrifice myself over it, not worth it!
so when people wear branded items, I say “what’s that?”
when they follow the trend, I say “so what?”
I refuse to follow the flocks of feathers,
even if I have to fly solo
and I don’t need some recognition
some people recognize me, “what for?”
Only us can recognize ourselves.
By looking inside, not outside.
By our own value, not others’.
Be ourselves, with or without, anything.
