People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar-Thich Nhat Hanh
I am grateful to be free from my suffering. I thought it was love…
I let you in
Seeps into my skin
My heart carries
Accepts your deceit
Hurt controls me
Scars me but
It feels necessary
My mind is gone
In my dependence
I am owned
But I am convinced
Nothing else can exist
Even if there is a cure
A way to cut the ties
Break the chains
And live free
Who will I be
If you don’t love me?
I’d rather suffer through
The deceit, the hurt
Than to build me up
And discover my worth
It is easier
To live in submission
Than to admit
This particular poem was written for those of us who have suffered from low self esteem. It’s not always easy to look in the mirror and be happy with the reflection. Becoming more confident in yourself is a process that begins with seeing your own value.
What you wouldn’t give
There is no price too steep
To stare into the mirror
And be met with beauty
You tried it all
Yet nothing sates your eyes
No Remy hair or MAC make up
Can create a suitable disguise
Your past has crushed you
Made you question your worth
But you wear an orchestrated smile
So as not to draw attention to the places you’ve been hurt
Understand you’re truly at your best
When you’re comfortable in your own skin
When you can accept your flaws
You’ll find peace and won’t have to pretend
You are worthy to be loved and admired
You weren’t created to be ashamed or afraid
You are a treasure like diamonds and rubies
Because you are wonderfully, uniquely, and beautifully made
