Poem from "Not I, But I Am"
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
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)
