Self Love​.​ 

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 3 by Nhojj



Everyday I share a few poetic lines on social media. One particular post started a debate on self love versus God's love. Why does it have to be either/or...


Self love I say and 
Some shake their heads and point
Somewhere outside themselves 
Sharing their view of truth

Truth so cosmic 
Truth so immense 
Truth that would require 
Millions of lifetimes to begin to grasp its entirety...

So I say
Grasp at whatever 
Bit is closest to you 
Let the music play...

Not every tree is an oak
Not every song is called folk
Different roads lead us home and I know
Different guys named Jerome
Not only fish live in the sea and 
There’s no one exactly like you or me so 

Let people be 
Let people live
Let people love 

Does it really matter whether love begins 
Inward and expands outward or starts
Outward and moves inward or 
Comes from above and bleeds down below or sleeps
Below and blossoms heavenward
Love creates love because, and 
I’m sure all the religions would agree...
God is love

So just 
Love folks 
Love stronger 
Love harder 
Love softer 
Love sweeter
