Enough with this self hate

Stop sticking knives

Into your own back and

Waiting for others to pull them out

And fill the holes with validation

Enough with this self sabotaging

Do not let these plastic feelings

Of worthlessness melt and

Burn your insides

Enough with these

Heavy eyed thoughts

That you do not put to sleep

And I know somedays

You will feel like a spec of dust

In the wind blowing aimlessly

Amongst the rubbish

But most days

You will be air

You matter

You are necessary

You are needed

You are loved

Even if you do not notice

People’s silent admiration

To breathe you in

You are not dust

You are air

You are enough
