Authentically Me!

Authentically Me

(by Teriko Epps)

Look in the mirror, who do I see,

Wonderful, beautiful, authentic me.

Made in His image, made from above,

Made in a manner of caring and love.

So why do I add to His created beauty?

Why can’t I see my flaws have their duty?

To mold me and make me who He wants me to be.

Oh Lord help me to see, Your beautiful me.

Why do I compare myself to my sista?

Then doubt me, be a hater, or “dis” her.

Her beauty is hers, and mine is mine.

Help me to believe what you made is just fine.

Give me the pride and the courage to just be

Your works are wonderful, I know that, THAT’S ME!

To not be authentic just takes me off course

Of Your path for me as You open new doors.

Help me to love as you love from above.

Lead me to display Your wonderful love.

It starts with me, to thine own self be true.

But it’s only complete through the Works of You.

Look in the mirror, who do I see,

Wonderful, beautiful, authentic me.

Made in His image, made from above,

Made in a manner of caring and love!
