I  am  selfless

I help when I can

I'm not bragging

I'm just me

Always happy to lend a hand


I am grateful

For all those things that I have

I'm not rich

I love who I am


I am resourceful

I have no complaints

I can make a dollar here and there

And give it all away


I am a jokester

I will make you laugh

Acting silly is nothing

Always happy to see you laugh


I am full of life

Serious when it's needed

But most of all

I'm me and I am always strong

And I love being me


I am me.


Michele Ann Nepinak
