In distant realm where self-reflection dwells,
A soul does ponder on its worth and guise,
Embracing truth that deep within it swells,
A bold confession, none can e’er disguise.
"I like me," speaks the heart with humble grace,
No boastful airs, nor vain conceit to bear,
For in this phrase, a deeper truth takes place,
A seed of self-acceptance tender and rare.
Not arrogance, but love for one's own being,
Acknowledgment of strengths and flaws combined,
A precious gem within life's vast decreeing,
In this self-like, true worth one shall find.
So let it be, this noble self-affirmation,
For in self-love, blooms life's sweetest elation.
