I Affirm

by Glen Martin Fitch

I am alive.
And even when alone,
I have the skills and peace
and all the stuff I need to thrive.
I'm more than good enough.
I value,
all that I have known.
My love's immense.
My humor is profound.
I show respect
in everything I do.
I see the best in all.
My word is true.
I now embrace my health.
I'm strong and sound.
I will be gentle
with myself today.
I will fulfill
commitments I have made.
I will confront,
and be of aid.
I will pursue my dreams
and pray
and play.
Right here,
right now,
I claim and own what's mine.
I am prepared
and this day I will shine.
