Where Self Love Is Born

a fantasy land
dreamt up by sleeping child
a peaceful magical place
where self-love is born
imperative to her soul

A Self Silence

Oh! Have you heard a stone's grief?
An inward pity shrieked in vain. 
It resonate beyond belief,
like a rose's scream under winter’s strain
or crumbling of spirit by parting’s pain.

Echoes of longing for inner peace
the hum of want and wonder why.
A ringing in ear that will never cease
from a shrill of passion's passing sigh; 
silent as stones when they cry.

Self Love

They say you cannot love someone if you do not love yourself
But loving yourself has nothing to do with feeling for someone else
I know because I spent many years severely hating myself
But I often felt deep love for friends I considered to be top shelf
They inspired love in my heart, which for myself was not ever true
I always wondered why when they would earnestly say "I love you"
In my mind I did not deserve love but with them that was not true
To love myself was something for me that always was taboo
You cannot force love on someone, this has always been true
But what do you do when the person you can't love seems to always be you

A poem about my past. I no longer feel this way.

Self pity

Looking through my tainted window of gloom

grey skies, rain falling, feeling sorrow

impatiently wanting  life to resume,

will things change, get better tomorrow, 

sure that  grass was greener the other side,

not walking a mile in your well trod shoes 

now ashamed looking for somewhere to hide

didn't realise how easily I would bruise,

underestimate this feeling of loss

an unidentifiable man anymore 

floundering like a wounded albatross,

indecent intentions, now I deplore

apologises are unheard, your not here

didn't know how so much I loved you dear.

Self Love

Concentrate on being enough for yourself, connect with you as your own person, and learn to develop yourself, become the most beautiful version of you, one that you are comfortable with, do not worry what others are believing, do whatever it takes to make yourself happy. Go out, and be happy, go and spread your relentless love, each and every time mean a little more, say a bit more than the last time, attempt to reach out to have a positive impact on many hearts, and minds.

it's good to be me
i've been set free

i like waking up in my own skin
i can't wait to wake up again and again

i pamper myself with kind words
my future burns bright as i look forward

towards the light contrasting
of my salvation everlasting

my life was meant to be
there's goodness inside of me

You are unique
With your bundle of talents
Quirks and flaws
Qualities and strengths

Appreciate your self
As you would
The most precious friendship
On all levels
respect and gratitude

You are your own best friend
Always loyal and supportive

Your Answers Are Yours Alone

I have all the answers for myself.
I know what I need to do, and how I should do it.
My soul speaks to me with absolute conviction.

No, I am sorry. I cannot
give you any of your answers.
If I did, they would be 
my answers, pretending
to know what your
answers should be.

I have no idea,
And dare not lead you.
For God gave each
Of us our own path,
Our own hopes, our
own dreams. Some
of them are hidden
So they cannot be hurt
or violated by others.

If you listen to your heart,
your soul will bring your
answers to the surface.
Share them with no one.
They are yours alone.

Oh what a mistake I have made,
Traveled so far to end up this way.
  Not in a million years would I have guessed,
That this idea was truly not one of my best.
  Never had  known things had changed so much,
We for sure had fallen so far out of touch.
  So many different do's , don't , and bewares,
Actually has left me absolutely  scared.
  What a fool I was to ever believe,
That she would ever be in love with me.
  At my age you would think I know better,
You can trust this will be remembered forever.
  Oh what a terrible mistake I have made,
Wanting all these memories to just fade away.

I Do Believe

"I Do Believe" 

The purpose of LIFE is to {Living In Faith Ever} 
to enrich God within us 
to an optimum level 
so that We as Humans 
can be guided by God 
to fuel out brothers and sisters 
with the same driving force 
to connect with the living God, 
to His existence and 
to See the Invisible, 
Believe the Incredible, and 
to Receive the Impossible 
to our everlasting journey 
to Heaven.

The Kitchenette Motel

Sometimes an
Old bulb inside him 
Flickers on 
And dimly lights 
His woozy thoughts 
And thirst to write
A song. 

Recall he's human, 
That's to say, he
Thinks he 
Still adheres, 
Not just a washed-up
Singer, missing
Schedules to

The stained and
Scribbled rhymes 
Of scattered nonsense 
On the floor, 
Three gulps of Vodka, 
Bring applause,
Adoring fans,

Gene Bourne

Who Am I

A new photograph floats to the surface
Playfully dressing up as the world around me
Hat, striped socks and all
Tiptoeing at the top for one last sweet moment 
Before sinking back into my ocean mind.

One after another they arrive
Single file,
Steeping my eyes in the world 
As the minds shutter, ever fluttering 
Strings together this conscious stream I play in.

My photographs fade in time’s wrinkled arms.
Joining their brothers and sisters at the ocean floor,
They hold hands and try to answer the question that is always asking itself:
Who am I?

I Awaken

I Awaken a child
to the nearness of my mother;
Feeling her breath of warmth--

(apparent is the joy
on her face
a labor well done);

my eyes maturing 
not quite focus
I trustingly reach 
for her special day
and mine
our discovery;

it is the grasp
of a newborn,

and the surrendering
of an 
infinite universe
to love....

The Smile - Itty Bitty

Pleasured, to feel life’s warm embrace. The smile, plastered across my face, is evidence thereof. Anticipation fills my heart, Knowing in my knower, what waits: another's smile, with love!

Categories: feelings, happiness, happy, inspiration, life, love, self,


H A P P I N E S S Harmony between the self and the world attracting positive energy amidst presence of problems and trials-- shaking, stretching peace, attitude within. Happiness shows innate smile, sharing, caring, giving and reaching out. Naturally, happiness home is within the self encompassing purpose fulfillment, substantial not only for thyself but for others success, healing and spiritual awakening. _____________________________________________________________ __Olive Eloisa Guillermo__ 4:30 pm, December 18, 2015

Categories: life, self, love, me, self,


 being me not self centered 
Caring and kind hoping to find 
The best there is in human kind
Trying not to be judgmental 
At the same time be conversational
Trying to see both sides as a one 
Often conceded as soft hearted 
Taken to the heart 
Often known for a few tear jerker’s 
Funny humors to the core 
Less often a bore 
Love to have around 
To brake a frown
Always willing to lend a hand
Love giving not receiving 
Patience in life’s everyday situations 
Great listener ready to give good feed back
A survivor not a fighter 
A forgiver not a forgetter 
Strong minded protective when it comes 
To the ones I love 
To sum it all up I am just me myself and I 
I love being my self

First Romantic Verse, 1960

Quiet night.
Quiet love...
Never told.
Damn my silence.
Wish you understood.
All I am is you.
I feel such a fool...

And fools are cheap these days.

A Note To Self - based on India Arie's song - Get It Together

A Note to Self
You and you alone 
can make the change
in your life to make it

Self you need to try a different angle
Years of trusting the wrong person
Has left you frazzled and depressed

Enough self-inflicted wounds on your heart
Cease the long waiting to exhale
Stop blaming others for your misfortune 

Make a change for your heart’s health
Flip the scrip this one isn't working
You and you alone can change yourself

For Poet ~ Destroyer's contest: ~~India Arie - "Get it together"

Dear Crush

Dear Crush,

How many bruises?
How many lonely nights?
How many broken hearts?
How many hurtful fights?

How many 'i'm fine' lies?
How many tears will fall?
Do you think I'm blind?
I know she caused them all! 

But I can't sway your heart.
I cannot make you see,
That when you hurt yourself,
You're really hurting me!

Sorry for this sucky poem. :/

Aubade: Your Eyes

“In an age where there is much talk about ‘being yourself,’ I reserve to myself the right to forget about being myself.” Thomas Merton

When I look into the mirror
I see the perfect mime,
moving left or right, mimicing
my vanity as I comb thinning hair,
check wrinkled skin for new blemish,
try figure out who I am;

but when I look into your eyes
I see long drives, mountain roads
rising to clouds, ocean mist
washing clean the highest pines
as the eastern sky
grows bright with

Your eyes
enfold me.

Like the rising sun,
your love renews
my aging day.
