Don’t speak highly of me when I’m gone, if you didn’t say it to my face.
Don’t cry for me when I’m gone, if you didn’t laugh with me when I was here.
Don’t miss me tomorrow when you didn’t need me today.
Don’t bring flowers to my grave, off you didn’t bring chocolate when I was here.
If I wasn’t important in life, I shouldn’t be in death.
If I was easy to ignore I life, please continue when I’m gone.
If I was unremarkable in life, forget me when I go.
If I wasn’t enough in life, let it be the same out there.
To my people I am a legend,
To my tribe I am the gift,
To my companions I am unforgettable,
To my students I am the mad one.
I may be easy to walk past,
I may be easy to dismiss,
I may be easy to judge,
I may be easy to forget,
Don’t worry I’m ok with all that.
I’m simple with simple tastes,
I just want to love and be loved,
I just want to know God and live for Him,
I just want to be true and free.
I cannot judge anyone because I have ignored some,
I have walked past many,
I have turned away from others,
I am just like those who didn’t know my worth.
I am no longer like that,
I am ruthless with my choices,
Selfish with my time and energy,
Focused in my endeavours.
I am enough, I am learning joy,
I am at peace, I am stabilising,
I am learning to love me fully,
I am more accepting of me.
I am enough because He is in me,
I am enough because I am loved,
I am enough because I am enough,
I am enough because I am ME.
