ENOUGH

If you look at me

And you tell me I’m enough

You shower me with applause

You kiss me, you hug 

you nod at me like you’ve known forever 

You  accept me as a whole 


You look at me and approve the choices

The mistakes didn’t matter

I’m perfect as I am


If you look at me

And tell me I’m enough

I can believe it for right now

My head stops spinning

And screaming my name

Asking for the reason I’m

Here 


Because if someone else can

Validate this

Can decide for me that I’m right

I don’t have to question and question

And question myself 

Don’t have to fight for my truth 

It’s right there in your eyes 


If you look at me

And tell me I’m enough

I can let myself believe you 

I can imagine that mirror 

Is unbreakable Forever

But then sleep and time and 

My own voice
