Just being me

I like myself unconditionally and I'm happy being me
I owe it to myself in the way it should be
I am worthy of love and all the happiness
I am a person of sharing,caring and the togetherness

I am a gentle person and patient with myself
I just occasionally sit on a shelf
I am a person that bounces back whenever I am down
I know in the end, I am laughing like a clown

I am determined and I can be very tough
I can lift myself up when things get rough
I can be very scared and not in line
I keep telling myself that I will do fine

I wake up in the morning with a smile on my face
I have a big adrenalin rush and staring into space
I feel in my heart that I will do well
I am determined, can you tell?
