Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
Veronica A. Shoffstall
My yearning soul, waiting
Ever so patient
To grow in strength
To travel the distance…
Quench my appetency to love me
I want to disencumber this fervent need
For acceptance from an external source
To “decorate my own soul”
From the cracks in my heart, grow…
My own garden, from my being
A beauty, strength, a love that embraces
The grace of me.

The greatest gift we can give ourselves is love. Instead of looking to somebody outside ourselves, it is really important to turn inwards and develop a relationship with the person you are. When one can do this, they have an even greater capacity to love others.
