ME

“What do you like most about you?” he asked

But for some reason, I didn’t have an answer to that.

Not that I didn’t have anything I liked about myself

But that, how I was raised, by family and society,

It is seen as pride to like something about you and openly declare it

Self-appraisal is the height of pride

You like what others like about you

And like wise, you hate what others hate about you

Because the people on the outside are always right

Because the people on the outside know more than you know about yourself

Because their opinion about you mattered than your opinion about yourself.

So as I sit here, pondering what I like most about myself

I reject the norms and mores

I know more about myself than anyone  ever would
And so I love myself for all my mistakes, errors and misconceptions

No one would be me but me

So I’m going to be the best me I can be
