Poems on Self-Love and Self-Respect



I am ready

to be called




But now

I will

think about

myself first

it is enough now

I can't ignore

myself more

I must

respect my




She loves

and accepts herself

with all her


That acceptance

makes her perfect.



It's enough now

You are not

ready to recognize

me in my dreams too

You have reached

the highest peak

of pretense.


Is there someone?

Is there someone...

who can see her beyond her beauty

who can value her intelligence too

who can read her mind

who can solve puzzles in her eyes

who can consider her opinions

who can give importance to her dreams

who can be patient to listen to her heart

who can be generous enough to let that little girl live in her heart

who can respect and admire her virtues

who can love her soul

and who can accept her whole existence with her flaws...?


I will

I haven't yet

achieved it

It doesn't

mean that

I don't

deserve it.


Beyond the Horizon

I am weaving

verses with

my eyes

I am painting

poetries in

the sky,


my dream life

beyond the horizon.


Secret box

My heart is a secret box

It has been hiding

my unsaid emotions within

But all those emotions have been

frozen now

They have transformed my heart

into an ice cube tray

My eyes and my lips have been


Because I have tied a velvet ribbon

of smile on them

To prevent them from revealing and


what has been frozen inside.



My thoughts and dreams are young

and will always be.

Because I am an ageless soul.
