A Love Letter

by Isabel Medina

to myself,
You are intelligent.
And although your mind is always racing 
with thoughts of others
and thoughts of your own,
if you focus hard enough,
the trees you plant
will become acres.
Your eyes are look childish,
innocent, ready for adventure.
Your dimple shows
when you genuinely laugh.
And quite frankly,
you always genuinely laugh. 
Do not accept the love 
you think you deserve
because that is not remotely close
to what 
you really are worth.
You are charismatic, unique
electricity in 5ft 3.
And believe me,
this is not 
the only love letter you'll receive.
But it is
the most important.
So toss out the others,
this is the one you actually need.
