you are enough

You’re not enough?

 

Let me ask that again,

you…think you’re not enough?

 

Who in their right mind made you believe?

To what are you not?

Since when did that thought creep?

 

Since those curious fingers wrapped around the magazine

With every fiber in you, eager to hold what’s inside

Only to find doubt and shame

Never realizing that beauty was not contained in a definition

That worth was who you were, not the thought of it.

 

Oh, well honey!

You are magnificent

With no need for pages to tell you what you should be doing.

 

Darling,

You are a work in progress

Wrapped in stories of hurt and love and triumph.

 

Absolutely nothing,

Nothing

Adds up to the space you consume

And the ideas in your head.

 

Xo Olivia
