As The Very Wise Mother

If you cannot love self you cannot love anyone
That is what the wise mother said to her young son
She did speak of fact and fact never lie
And the truth in her words never destined to die
But far too much self love to narcissism gives rise
Which after all does come at no great surprise
To be over enamored with self for self is not a healthy thing
Their own praises some over inclined to sing
Those with a healthy sense of self love for others do care
And the healthy love in them with others they share
To help those of helping in need they go out of their way
And they do a good deed sometimes more every day
As the very wise mother said to her young son
If you cannot love self you cannot love anyone.
