Readers have called her work "life changing," "must read," "powerful" and "part of my daily ritual." On Instagram, where she is known as MG, her poetry has gone viral, receiving millions of impressions due to its deeply emotional and relatable tone. Most recently, her 2020 poem went viral via Oprah Magazine and captured the hearts of people around the world after a most difficult year. "I thought 2020 would be the year I got everything I wanted. Now I know 2020 is the year I appreciate everything I have."

Now, Melody Godfred, Self Love Philosopher, acclaimed speaker, and founder of global Self Love Movement Fred and Far is back with her second book, Self Love Poetry for Thinkers & Feelers, a collection of 200 thought-provoking self love poems.

In Self Love Poetry for Thinkers & Feelers, Godfred explores concepts like authenticity, surrender, resilience, gratitude (including the 2020 poem above), believing in yourself, and of course, love, through 100 pairs of self love poems each dedicated to a central theme. On the left side of the book are poems that light up the analytical, literal, left side of the brain and on the right side are poems that bring your creative side to life. Combined, the poems electrify your mind, body and soul and inspire all of us to embrace all parts of ourselves.

This empowering book will not only engage you to think and feel, but will encourage self-reflection, make you feel seen, empower you to love yourself, and inspire you to seek out the hope and beauty in the world... and in yourself. It's the perfect gift to yourself or someone you love.

Melody is also the author of self love workbook The ABCs of Self Love. Learn more about her at and on Instagram @fredandfar.

Excerpts from Self Love Poetry for Thinkers & Feelers

Left Brain - Thinkers

I thought this would be the year I get everything I want.
Now I know this is the year I appreciate everything I have.

Right Brain - Feelers

Expectation closed my eyes. Gratitude opened them.
Fear closed my eyes. Trust opened them.
Complaining closed my eyes. Appreciation opened them.
Perfection closed my eyes. Authenticity opened them.
Guilt closed my eyes. Self love opened them.

Left Brain - Thinkers

Instead of loving people who withhold their love,
I'm loving myself and holding space
to receive love from someone who
wants to give it to me.

Right Brain - Feelers

I begged for your love.
I bent for your love.
I broke for your love.
And all the while,
all I did, was
beg and bend and break.
