First and Foremost

I wanna be loved by me first

I wanna be the beholder

Because when I get up in the morning and look towards the mirror

I’m the first thing I see

And I wanna think she is beauty.

I wanna be loved by me first

Not scared to fall

Because I know that I would never hurt something so precious.

I wanna be loved by me first

Enjoying my own company

whether in silence or with the radio blasting

Comfortable in and out of my body

Not scared to have my own private party.

I wanna be loved by me first

Couldn’t imagine only working to have a life with a man

because then I’d be missing the “wo” that life needs.

I wanna be loved by me first

not longing for a climax

that will never come

or comes too fast

I wanna enjoy and savor every moment with me.

I wanna be loved by me first

Accepting the darkness above my lips

And the length of my nails

And my long feet

And my legs that are covered in spots that bend all the way back

And the… and the.. and the

EVERYTHING!

I wanna be loved by me first

Treating myself to the best because I’ve always been selfish

and I don’t want nobody else I swear.
