Erika
West Bend, Wisconsin

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
