I look at myself in the mirror
“You’re a dork.”
I think I should be more positive
And try magnificent
“You’re a magnificent dork”
“You’re a beautiful, magnificent dork!”
Maybe without the dork
“You’re a beautiful, magnificent fool!”
I sigh, closer to truth
If not completely clinched for the day
Foolish, I can live with that
This beautiful, magnificent fool heads for the door

Works for me, though my own perception of you leans toward the magnificent — within & without.
Thank you! Very kind of you.
