The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.

I fear that I am completely messed up,
I am utterly abnormal,
And totally insecure
About my lack of insecurities.
I’m absolutely fine.
No fierce internal battle here.
I’m not just saying that.
I am good with who and how I am.
I know that probably means
That I am the most screwed up of all,
To be honest,
I know where my faults are.
I acknowledge them,
In fact they are slightly amusing,
And they are part of me.
If I were perfect
I would be dangerously flawed
But I am not
Because I am.

The author's comments:
We were talking all about self esteem in class, and our teacher was telling us statistics about how so many people suffer from self esteem issues, and it got me thinking. A few years ago, some of those figures would have applied to me. I am fortunate that I was able to straighten out my headspace. Hopefully others can to.
