You may ask,
'Why myself?' -- and I say,
It is the only thing there is.
Because everything else hurts,
Even if it isn't meant to hurt.

Because I am afraid, and I recognize it,
But I will not change it because I am comfortable,
Because all I have is my ability to see what I have,
And if I let go for even a moment,
It will crumble and drift away from me,
Like a sandbar at high tide;
This is why myself.

God Bless Me,
I am flawed, and
Prickly, and

And I cannot exist externally,
but at I least I know that I am real to me.
I am not glorious,
I do not rise up,
I cannot survive above myself.
But for now I do,
and for now I survive.
And that is enough.

God Bless You,
God Bless Me,
God Bless the United States of America.

I love you,
And have a wonderful day.
