I was almost going to say …

“Your hate cant touch me,

I dont like me myself”

but I dont hate myself

I dont know any who do


I would better say instead …

“Your touch cant reach me

I cant reach me myself”

it would be more correct

since feeling comes so hard



Because I really dont hate myself.

I often think that Im worthless,

that Im unworthy consideration,

that I own nothing of any value to

anyone, even to myself. I convince

myself that these are an accurate

assessment of who I am. But I sure

dont hate myself. Really, I dont.


Not even a little.
