I am still Me

 I AM STILL ME 


"Look at me

I am still me

I may not look or act like I did years ago, But I am still me.

When I am scared,

I may cry

I may wander.

Reassure me, talk with me.



When I am frustrated,

I may scream

I may strike out.

Let me know I am safe; explain to me what I should do.



When I am cold or hungry,

I may yell

I may be restless.

Help me find comfort; ask me what I like to eat.

Look at me,

I am still me.

I just need your help now to guide me, to comfort me.

BUT I AM STILL ME"
