Loving yourself is hard to do

Being nice and sweet

to everyone you meet

is easy-peasy

but loving yourself is hard to do.


Putting up with

the odd bollocks

isn’t that hard

but loving yourself is hard to do.


Voting for people

who are out to screw you

is quite ok,

but loving yourself is hard to do.


Environmental collapse

and impending doom

are normal now,

but loving yourself is hard to do.


All your faults

and all your guilt

are obvious to you,

loving yourself is hard to do,

but if God can do it,

so can you!
