15 Beautiful Poems on Self-Love That Will Help Heal Your Soul Today

Oh, the highs and the deep, deep lows of life! There’s beauty in them all, but it’s so much harder for our eyes to see the beauty in our pain than in our ringing laughter. But poets, now, they see beauty in the unlikeliest of places, don’t they?

Which is why I cherish the poetry of Jinan Safko, an Instagram poet who writes with the intent of letting her words bring her up from the dark places that life puts her in…with the power of self-love.There’s truly something to be cherished here for all of us, because who hasn’t found themselves at the very rock bottom and struggled to love who they see in the mirror afterwards?


I don’t want to choose pieces of me I get to love.

We give ourselves our second chances.

On our own rebirths.

I learn to love who I am…bit by bit.

Why look for approval anywhere else?

incantations to love who you are.
