Poem "I am Me"
by Virginia Satir

I AM ME In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me
Everything that comes out of me is authentically me
Because I alone chose it - I own everything about me
My body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions,
Whether they be to others or to myself - I own my fanatasies, My dreams, my hopes, my fears -
I own all my triumphs and Successes, all my failures and mistakes Because I own all of Me, I can become intimately acquainted with me -
by so doing I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts -
I know There are aspects about myself that puzzle me,
and other Aspects that I do not know -
but as long as I am Friendly and loving to myself,
I can courageously And hopefully
look for solutions to the puzzles
And for ways to find out more about me -
However I Look and sound, whatever I say and do,
and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time
is authentically Me -
If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought And felt
turn out to be unfitting,
I can discard that which is Unfitting,
keep the rest, and invent something new for that Which I discarded -
I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do
I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be Productive
to make sense and order out of the world of
People and things outside of me -
I own me, and therefore I can engineer me -
I am me
