Love Me Better

love me better

written by: Linda M. Crate



out of the ashes
i stand
re-purposing chaos
fashioning it as a

immortal of the flame
will always rise
from death,
and will never be conquered
by the fires of defeat;

so many have tried to kill me
i just die to who i was
shed it like snakeskin as i rise again
it’s not even hard for me

don’t think
your rejection was a challenge
i will always rise above
don’t need anyone because i have myself
i am the only one i will spend my whole life with

have learned to love myself
so no one has to
because i can love me better
than you ever could
or ever will.
