Because they already
Love you for
Who you are instead
Those who
Love us
Unconditionally like that

Are actually rare
In life
And yet far
Too often
We fail to
Acknowledge them
Because we are
Always trying
To prove
To those
Who in
The long run
Don't even matter

See the good
Right in front of you
Appreciate those people
Who appreciate
And love you
For you
Before its too late

And you end up missing
What you never
Even knew
You had
