Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
Have you ever thought about somewhat weird fact
that we are always so nice to all of our guests
with courtesy, generosity, and a friendly tact
but in our skin being intruders and pests.
We entertain them, make them laugh with ease
while time spent with them flies like breeze
we even downsize our ego to appease
exposing jugular in a self-tease.
We're always making sure to apologize
for this, or that, not turning out the best
being too busy kissing ass as to realize
how we deserve the same as our guest.
At the end we walk them to the front door
concerned they may drift into messy room
again apologizing as to keep high our score
for any possible flaw staying in their zoom.
So why not invite ourselves to be our dear guest
in our own skin, and maybe in all of life as well
to treat ourselves with friendliness and the rest
instead of staying imprisoned in that ugly shell.
Not treating our skin as dirty shirt
but instead letting it glow from within
being our best friend wouldn't really hurt
to give ourselves all that love isn't really sin.
