Self Portrait

Vintage Words


You gotta.

Not as a rule

or a mandate.

You just gotta.


Repeat after me:

"I am a great person."

200 times daily

or as needed.


You gotta.

Not for anyone

but you to sing

happiness in

the mirror until

it is reflected

in your head.

You just gotta.







Author's Notes/Comments: 

You have to be your own cheerleader when your world takes a dip/dive/plummet. Up up with me is the mantra. Up up with people follows :D
