Subj: self worth

You are strong.
Yes, but...
You are confident.
Yes, but...
You are trustworthy.
Yes, but...
You are selfless.
Yes, but...
You are ambitious.
Yes, but...
You are loving.
Yes, but...
You are kind.
Yes, but...
You are smart.
Yes, but...
You are attractive.
Yes, but...

Sometimes I need encouragement, acceptance and care
Sometimes I am needy, lonely and scared
These are things that draw companions in
And leave all of me bared

I have much more depth
Than any single part
I am a painting of many different colours
Nothing is clear where one part ends and another start

Though sometimes my thoughts play tricks
And mess with my mind
I am much more of a woman
Than those who barely look find

Penned by my hand on the 25th of Daedalan, in the year 646 AF.
