*EVEN IN BAD TIMES*
Thank you for keeping me waiting,
It taught me patience.
Thank you for keeping me in the shadows,
It made me more observant and objective;
And helped me see you as you played out.
Thank you for the drama,
It's lessons are songs to my soul;
Forever singing, forever ringing,
The melodies of your sorrowful praise.
Thank you for the words of your body,
The screams of your eyes;
They spoke more truth than your lips.
I can't underestimate their assistance.
Thank you for your acceptance in guise,
It made me see that I'm not even good,
Good enough for you.
I learnt to value myself for who I am.
Thank you for yourself,
For the gift of you;
It helped me find ME!
It helped me find the gift of myself;
The gift in myself: The ME in me!
