You Are

A poem of Truth.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Taught by the world
you’re not enough,
lulled into slumber.
into believing you’re separate
from the Divine.
Too tender 
to defend your perfection,
so you forgot who you are.
You are loved
and so perfect right now.
You are whole, and complete,
and enough
just because
of your humanity.
Loved, cherished, supported,
safe, beautiful, vital,
wise, able, strong.
Then, and now, and tomorrow,
and all the tomorrows after tomorrow,
this is who you are.
