Poem from "Not I, But I Am"

 Guys,

I was in a place of doubt in myself; but, then realized that even if no-one else approves or likes me, it's okay because God loves and accepts me as I am. I wouldn't imagine myself any other way than as I am and God's approval and acceptance of me is good enough in accepting myself as I am. 

Image is Imagined Self

 

 I imagine myself to be

Clothed in societies view

That most prefer to see

In making me feel all new

This view seems accepted to me

For with the attention I finally grew

In that view most seem to agree

Is a necessary comfort to thee

In order to be socially free

However, moral conviction limits my glee

Comfort then can become my plead

Where self-image suffers to a degree

One born again for others to see

Self-image is then mine to be

(Deciding no matter, societies view of me, what’s important is my faith in following the Lord.
And, knowing that He appreciates me as I am)
