    Learning to Love ME
    From my short nappy fro
    To MY big o' feet below
    Loving MY big lips and MY oversize hips
    Loving every inch of ME even those parts I hate to see
    Loving MY big heart and even that shy part
    No matter good or bad I'M the only ME I have
    If I don't learn to love who I be
    MY life would continue to be filled with misery
    That's why I'm learning to love ME
    So that I could live this life contenly
