My QuirKy Way

I needed validation
Someone to tell me I'm okay

But even when I got it
It was not enough
The canyon just got wider
The climbing just got rough

Striving and struggling to make it through
Past all the voices
I listened to
When inside I knew
What was really true

No one is perfect
And that is okay

I know I am beautiful
In my quirky way
I know I am smart
Though I can't spell
(If you read enough of my poetry
You already can tell)

I know that validation
Needs to come from within
And no one can give me
I have to believe
In what God says about me

I have to choose who I am
And love me too
And just be who I am
And just do what I do
