Love yourself

I’m not average
And I’m not thin,
Emotions don’t pass
This concrete skin.
I’m covered in tattoos
Hiding the scars,
Which I lose my head
Within the stars.
I don’t need affection
Or your presents,
I’m very strange
And rather intense.
I don’t need you to love me
Because I love myself
Spend your time
Loving another,
Or learn to love yourself.

    Your best one yet!
    By the way, looks don’t mean a thing!
    Plus, you may not know it, but you’re BEAUTIFUL
    inside and out!

    When a blogger re-blogs someone else’s post, they get a notification, just like the one you got above, and they have to be approved, just like a comment.

    Well, I have re-blogged many other posts from many other bloggers and WTF? They did not approve the re-blog notification SO, I just went through and deleted all those posts, plus I unfollowed their blogs, and I deleted them from my blog subscribers list, and it was FUN!

    I just had to tell someone, and I thought YOU would get a kick out of it! Everyone wants to promote their blog, and most people do it by simply “liking” other people’s blogs without even reading them!


    • Haha I should try this unfollowing people sounds fun especially the grammar Nazi’s. HHa I don’t have any time to go through others blogs. I really should. I love reading raw writing than the professional shit , and thanks for sharing made me laugh slightly x

        I knew you would get it! I literally deleted 100 re-blogged posts from simple-minded young ladies who use WordPress as their own personal refrigerator door to hand their 8,000 selfies to try to boost their egos! A couple of the gals are obsessed with eating lettuce and ice cubes, working out in the gym until they’re in pain, then snapping 250 selfies in one session! Guess it makes them feel better about their empty, meaningless lives! Okay, that’s my rant for today!

        BTW: Try it, you will enjoy it! Delete, delete, delete!


      • Haha I live deleting especially on facebook then I realise I got carried away and took my sister off haha, yeah I know what mean with superficial egos… sticks to us lot that don’t give a shit how much we eat and drink and arnt looking for attention 🙂 thank you I’ve enjoyed your rant x

    Everyone is Average. Thank you for the poem though. It gave me a title for one of mine “Hate Yourself” 😐😐
