So Be It


Until we have learned how
To love and respect ourselves
We are simply playing at
Loving or respecting
Anyone else at all

And if this requires us
To struggle through hell
As may well be the case
Before we can return
Healed, strengthened

Then so be it

  1. I do Love and Respect My Self completely and want others to love and respect me as an artist — especially my kids!

  3. Amen. Nothing is more true (and often there’s nothing more difficult). It’s nice to finally be catching up a bit with you, Ben.
