The words of this poem are absolutely beautiful, relevant, and uplifting. It's an inspiring quick read on the topic of self-esteem and self-acceptance. I first read this book/poem in high school many years ago, and it's one that stays in my heart even still.

I was torn between giving this 2 or 3 stars; unfortunately no option for 2.5. It's really no more than a gift book made up of a single poem strung out over several pages. Presents the concept that we own ourselves - our bodies, our thoughts, our choices, our feelings - and we can create the life we want. Could be a good gift for the person who needs esteem-building.

Inspirational and the quickest self help book in existence. Simply calls one back into focus.
