Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings


I have dealt with a lot of self modification
I have used it to a T out of desperation
I know I have made mistakes
I know I want to learn from them because my heart aches
But I also know the devil is around telling me
I am not enough and I am no longer free

But I hope to know I am enough today
So I can be myself, hooray!!

You tell me not to do this or that
If you eat too much sugar, you’ll be fat
Don’t wash your hands 4 times in a row
You need to learn to go more with the flow
I know

But I hope I am enough today
So I can be myself, hooray!!

I am not trying to cause a riot
Or going after the next easy-way-out diet
Or reading the next self help book that you say, “You should try it”
I am just trying to get over these dark emotions
By trying to fight it

But I hope I am enough today
So I can be myself, hooray!!
And maybe you can too…

    Ofcourse you are good enough.. Each one of us is beautiful, including you, as we are god’s own creation.
