A day with many expectations



A day

with many expectations.


A day that you are expected

to show love.


A day with the expectation

of receiving love.


A day when love is measured

on how well you can afford things.


It is great to be appreciated and remembered on this day.


There are 364 other days that you may crave love and attention.


Who is supposed to love you and make you feel good inside all year long?


What kind of flower will bring you constant joy all year long?


What kind of chocolate will bring you constant joy all year long?


Who knows your needs the best?

Who cares about you the most?

Who can bring you joy all year long?


Do not search for the prince or princess out there.

Look in the mirror. It is YOU!


Have you cared about yourself today?

Have you gone within, to know yourself better today?

Have you told your inner child, I love you, today?


Happy Valentine's Day.

How very refreshing such a poem, then usual gushing and efusing literature one sees on this day, and so much more true and enlightened, so much more needed to counter the spillage, the garbage, from the commercial market, it has almost become a religion in a the sense, many are caught in it's idiot rampage. Tend to your inner garden says a great deal, many are too lazy to tend it, and are all too willing to share their weeds instead. Unless one does tend it lovingly, and in turn receives the beauty grown in it, and then is actually able to share a boquet of love, some last a life time, independend of any one day a year approbiation. Hurray for romantic love, but let's keep it that way, let's not make it the end all and be all of everything, another Hollywood, etc,
Blessings! Jasmin Horst
