Affirmation

If you can't accept who I am,
I can't accept you know what's best for me.
I am who I am and I don't plan on changing.
Yes change is beautiful, 
But what if you're beautiful before you change?
I'm fine with who I am right now 
And nothing's going to change *that*.
If you've got a problem with that,
Then I don't want to know you.

    Hi Jess powerfully put,and a message to us all that if we are true to ourselves then we have no need for change and should not allow other's to try to convince us otherwise.It takes courage which you seem to have in bucketfuls.A truly inspiring poem,I like it alot and admire you.Thank you for your encouraging words which I am sure will give strength to other's in this situation.Love June(Sylvia)
