I Am for What I Am

In the whole world, there’s no one like me.
There are people that have a resemblance like me, 
but there’s nobody like me.
That’s why, all the things that comes from me,
are only mine because I chose it to be.
I own everything within me…
my body, all that I’ve done
my mind, all that I thought
my eyes, all that I saw
my feeling, all that I felt
even its anger, happiness, 
and hope
my lips, all the words that I uttered, 
right and wrong
my voice, loud or soft
And, my actions for someone or for myself.

I own my ambitions, dreams, wants, anticipations and fears.
I own my joy, success, mistakes and failures.
Because I own myself I know more about it
With all of my actions I can love myself
And be my friend for every part of my body.

I can protect my most precious values
I know that I have the hidden abilities
But, until I love myself truly
I have a hope and confidence to solve
What is bothering on my mind
And, to find more about my true self.

Nevertheless, to know more about me
With all my words and deeds
And what I am thinking about
And feel for the future
Only I, knows about it.
When I’ve learned my words and deeds
And knows how to think and feel
I can balance things into perspective.

I can get rid of my bad traits
And left the good ones to use
And create new best alternatives
To look forward into the future.
