You’re all you need

When it gets dark,

be the light

who lights up the room.

When you start feeling detached,

be the person

who would hold you tight, through it all.

When you start feeling doubtful,

be the person

who can love you with all your scars.

When it gets overwhelming,

be the person

who lights up the mood.

When it gets lonely,

be the person

you would love to be with.

Be the person that you need,

and everything else,

will just fall into place.


I wrote the first three lines of this poem last September for someone else who was going through a tough time. It’s funny, how in just a year, it’s me now, who needs to read this and implement it. Well, I completed this one!


We need to be the person that we want in our lives. We can’t really expect others to do something for us, which we can’t even do for ourselves in the first place. What do you think? Share your views in the comment section below!

    Very true- sometimes you have to be who you would’ve wanted someone else to be for you!

      Exactly. You can’t expect someone else to love you when you don’t even love yourself

    To implement is to initiate and to initiate is to ignite. The first three lines was the spark, the rest of the piece was the flame you created when you realized your inner strength lovely.♥️. I loved this show of motivation and true belief, self love is the key to being able to love someone else special. You are amazing to let others know that with this poem, everybody is somebody. You are all someone needs.🌹

      Indeed. It took me a lot of time but now I know, that you can never really love anyone else if you don’t love yourself. And I get what you’re trying to say in the end XD
