To join in the modern day celebrations for St. Valentine’s Day, here is a Valentine’s Day Poem – a Self-Love Poem for Her:- Love Yourself First. What, Even Girls like Us?
It is from my heart and dedicated to all the women I’ve met – and will meet, over the years who learn to love and value themselves as you survive and thrive from abuse and sexual exploitation.
It is offered to all young girls and women who feel love is outside of themselves and something “someone” else has to give you, to validate yourself. I believe women are the bedrock of society and we need to work together to empower young girls and women to stand strong, find the love inside and shine.
‘Heads Up’ About Valentine’s Day Poem – Self-love Poem for her
I was in two minds whether to post this poem because it isn’t your usual love poem, especially on St. Valentine’s Day.
The poem is very graphic and may offend some of you.
However, given the history and legends surrounding Valentine’s Day and the fact love comes in all shapes and forms. We are not all born with a silver spoon in our mouth. I am sharing this poem in honour of the women who inspired me to write it.
