To All The Boys I've Loved Before

This poem is an oldie but a goodie by Mayda Del Valle. It's a reminder we think women need to hear over and over again! We love Mayda's intelligence, strength and power as a poet! We hope you enjoy!

"I guess
it’s so much better to have loved and lost
than never to have loved at all
I know that’s some easy shit to say

but I’m still gonna try to live by it
I’m still gonna try to put my faith to rest in it

I will sleep on dry pillows now in a bed big enough to love myself in
I will awake these coming mornings with my eyes dry and shining
full of the knowledge I am priceless and worth nothing but honesty"
