Lately, I’ve been immersing myself in the beauty that is Nayyirah Waheed’s book salt and I am astounded how a few sentences made up of words can have such a profound effect on me.  Most of her poems are somewhere around 20 words and they’re so simple and beautiful. That got me looking at other mico-poets and their words about loving yourself.

Here are some of my favorite self-love quotes and micro poetry.
