Narcissus

Poetry by Sarah Turley

Narcissus

Why must one love themselves in only dramatic degrees?
You can either hate yourself
or love yourself so much so that people label you.
Vain. Narcissist.
Well I personally think that maybe Narcissus was rightfully in love with himself,
was he not beautiful?
Did he not deserve his own love?
Why could he receive the praise and envies of others,
yet when he saw his reflection
and thought he was good looking, he was punished?
