Before I Leave the Stage

To me, this poem says to love yourself. It can be the work of a lifetime. I hope you are singing the song you were meant to sing.

Before I Leave the Stage

by Alice Walker

Before I leave the stage

I will sing the only song

I was meant truly to sing.

It is the song

of I AM.

Yes: I am Me




I love Us with every drop

of our blood

every atom of our cells

our waving particles

—undaunted flags of our Being—

neither here nor there.
