All that I am

The family is in me.
I hold and am and practise
All its values. I have
Lived, am living, a special life.
I am a rare and beautiful
Individual. I have survived
Many things. People have loved me
And I love people still. My
Family is in me, my mother and
Father are in me, 1 can wake
And carry on, I can carry
What has happened and
Absolve myself of all blame for
I did the best I can. I will
Neither put myself down again
Nor deny my religion. I am
All that I am. I am me.
