live and love while you still can,
without fear or question.
love because you deserve to hold your
sense of self and understand you’re worth the love,
and as you love, respect your boundaries.
give them names and use them in conversation because they are your friends,
those who love you will know your friends well and
have a sense of respect for the time you
need to spend with them.
and while you have boundaries, remember yourself too.
because to fully love you have to have loved yourself first.
to know your own name and every fiber that holds
your cells together.
you of gold and immenseness.
don’t close yourself off-
