Full Of Myself - For T. D. - Poem by Scarlett Treat

I am just full of my self,
From my bones within,
Outward to my skin,
And all the blood that flows,
From my head to my toes!

No room inside me
For Anyone else, you see...
Just me!
And proud to be

This, I guess,
Is a vote for myself,
And no one else...
For you see,
I am full of me!

Now, there are others,
Don't you know,
That I love, and
I hope it shows...
But I just have to care
In here somewhere...
Just for me,
From my heart...
From the start!

I love me,
For I am pretty nice
Don't you see...
From My bones to my skin,
And from the blood
That flows within
From my head to my toes,
Goodness Knows!

And if you don't like what you see,
Then, my dear, feel free..
To look the other way, and say
'She's not a nice gal
To have for a pal, '
But...and this is all I can say,
'I LIKE ME! ! '

    There's nothing not to like here -
    'From my bones within,
    Outward to my skin,
    And all the blood that flows,
    From my head to my toes! '
    - love the confidence that oozes from these free flowing, rhythmic lines. jxx
