Self Love/Self Hate

People just assume that
I hate myself.
That’s not true.
They say you’re supposed to
“Love yourself.”
Well, I don’t love myself either.
You see, I don’t know myself
So how can I have such
Strong feelings
Towards someone I barely know?
It doesn’t make sense to me.
And how do you know yourself?
Aren’t we all constantly changing
All the time?
Maybe I like myself today,
But tomorrow I’ll be a
Different person--
Someone I hate.
So, no, I don’t hate myself,
And no, I don’t love myself.
I am indifferent,
Still ambivalent, 
Towards myself.
