It's like in the musical the Color Purple (and although i haven't seen it yet- I've been singing the lyrics to I'm Here).....
I don't need you to love me...... I don't need you to lovvveee.....
I got...... I goootttt.....
great family members,
a good sound mind,
a good body,
a good heart,
empathy for those who hate their lives,
i just love me right now... even if I am techinically void of a permanent job---- i got what
I've always had-- myself...
"I got my hands-- doing good like the used to"
"showing my heart to the folks I'm close to"
"Got my eyes- though the don't see that far now--- they see how things really r now"
thank u to my good friends for supporting n loving me--
"but most of all I'm thankful loving who I really am"
It's really depresing when you see people who don't see the joy in their lives, the don't see the good in themselves, in you, in others, they set on the subway and stare into space-- that must be a sad exitence......i'm just glad that i am and can be me.... there's nothing more important to Emotional than being exactly who he is and all his complexity.....
