The Real Problem

Sunayna Pal


The problem is not them,
It is you.
It isn’t really you, either–
It’s your thoughts

They tell you that you are unloved,
They make you feel unloved.
How is it possible
when I feel the most loved with you?
Haven’t you heard of Karma?
The love you give away
comes back multiplied.
Then how is it possible
for you to not feel loved?

It is all in your head.
Really, search your heart
and you will find it.
You are beautiful.
Everyone does find
their true love.
You will too!
I know you will.
I have seen others,
I don’t doubt it.
