Self-Esteem · 23 September 2000

I love myself but not too much
They call it self-esteem.
I’m not like some who like themselves
In the mirror to be seen.
No I’m not vain not hardly so
I know that faults have I
But they don’t stop me for very long
In the endeavors that I try.
I know my faults and try to fix them
Every single day.
I know my strengths and use them
To get me on my way.
But most of all I know myself
Imperfect that’s for certain
But wise enough to love myself
If I didn’t, I’d be hurtin’.
