Child

Child,

You are joy.

In your laughter

I hear my soul speak.

 

Child,

You are innocence.

In your sweetness,

I recover my solace.

 

Child,

You are kindness.

In your praises,

I unearth my security.

 

Child,

You are love.

In your adoration,

I find my needs met.

 

Child,

You are vulnerability.

In your needs,

I discover my meaning.

Good Enough

I supported you,
Trying to fill the holes in your heart.
I was better than I’d ever been,
But not good enough for you.

I cared for you,
Trying to become the woman you needed.
I was better than I’d ever been,
But not good enough for you.

I forgave you,
Trying to believe it wasn’t about me.
I was better than I’d ever been,
But not good enough for you.

I conceded to you,
Sacrificing and believing in more.
I was better than I’d ever been,
But not good enough for you.

I am strong,
Continuing to grow and care for myself.
I am better than I’ve ever been,
I’m good enough and free.
