MY NEW BEST FRIEND
In isolation i found myself,
all this time my heart
was given to someone else.
In my world of loneliness I searched my soul,
I never thought that I could look at myself
as a stranger from another world.
I shook my own hand as I do a Best Friend,
for it took a pandemic for me to realize
the potential I bring to my own life.
I gave my spirit a love that is unimaginable,
for in the midst of crowding with people
I forgot to love myself first before I do someone else.
