I love me

I love who I am today

Cut, removed, and radiated me

Took some time in-between to rest before

I stand tall with new knees

I am strong, and I am weak

I am ready to be steady and trust

That each and every step is a step into loving me more.

I take care of those I love and

When I am weak I take care of them more

Because I hide inside a duty

It is hard to care for me, duty comes first

I was taught wait

When others are in need, my needs can always wait

Caring for myself was taboo, I was made to love God

I was made to love others, but I was made to love me, too

God is love, I was made in love, God loves me.

I love me and I am learning to care for me

With my next new knee, it is going to be about loving me

My next new knee will be here soon

I am going to with the help of Christ love me and care for me.

As one of my many gifts to God in living the command of Jesus the Christ

Love myself as I love others
