Inside vs Outside

A poem

Inside and out
Do you love yourself
everyday with fortitude
and vigour continuously through
times when that love is tested?
Inside and out
Do you feel that love…
Do you trust it’s authentic…
Do you believe the cadence of it…
Do you need it to make sense…
Inside and out
Conflicting battles
Each one serving to protect,
opposingly deemed adversaries
(but) causing death to their host.
Inside and out
Up — down, chest
