    When I'm left alone
    and it's just me
    I realize all of me in it's entirty
    The good, the bad, and the ugly
    Now that I'm older
    It's seems not to matter
    If there's anyone left with me
    Through the drama and the pain
    Feeling crucified
    Still unashamed
    No alibis for myself
    And no one to blame
    Through fluctuating weight loss
    I still have everything to gain
    Slippin in and out of the big black hole
    The one where I fall endlessly
    Remembering how much they hated me
    Made me want to hate myself
    When I thought of the people that were mad at me
    It made me want to escape the aftermath of myself
    And in the eyes of someone so changed
    I see the rules are still the same
    Somethings you can't control
    Feeling like I've come to the end of the road
    Where I can't run no more
    Still there's a little hope
    Peering out of the darkness like a tunnel
    Besides the lessons learned
    It's all good though
    I'm starting to accept
    Where I'm going
    Even though no one is knowing
    And I'm loving
    Being a champ
    God your love is my lamp
    Through the tears endlessly falling like rain
    I wake up and see the sun shining again
    Father You love me
    So I can accept myself again

    God accepts all about us, so we certainly can accept ourselves, the good, the bad, and all that is in between. Feeling your flow poet.
