Me First

There was something familiar about the words that day
Like they'd come home after loosing their way 
Now they resound, out-loud sometimes said 
Upon my mirror they live and dwell in my head 

I think I unlearnt them or was taught they were wrong 
Like the words going backwards at the start of a song 
Without them I've lived only a part of me present 
Happily not noticing the missing percent 

Now they come back when I remember to breath 
Terrifying and thrilling that sight underneath 
I say them in joy and humility submersed  
With heart open wide and in love ME FIRST
