Poetry: You Are Enough

Don’t let others tell you that
You’re not good enough
Not even yourself
Especially not yourself

Because you are enough,
and special,
and nothing lacking thereof
You are worth more than you think

Even if you keep failing;
You may not have the looks,
the skills, the money, the fame,
Even if you may not have anything to offer

My dear, best believe me,
It’s all in your head

Come over here,
Let me tell you what you are

You are capable
You have potential
You have a mind and a heart,
You have a soul

You are unique
There’s no one like you
You see, you feel and you think of things differently
And no one can take those from you

Not even yourself,
Especially not yourself

So be yourself
For you are the universe

My love, you are enough.

If you’re interested, I recommend this book of poetry by Rupi Kaur: Milk and Honey, where it is a collection of experiences pertaining to violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity.
