maybe just maybe

I know that sometimes it can be hard to look in the mirror and feel like you’re enough.

Is my hair, body, and clothes

Good enough?

Having to adjust the way you walk or the way you talk to please them

It’s even more difficult when the biggest critics are your parents

Maybe, if I talk like this or walk like this or do this or do that they won’t say anything today

Maybe, just maybe

If I stay quiet at the right time and speak at the right time we won’t argue today

Maybe, I won’t go out today so they don’t ask for details

If I lie, they’ll know I’m lying..

If I tell the truth they’ll still think I’m lying

They already think I’m “sinning”

I know that sometimes it can be hard to feel loved

Do they really love me for who I am?
Do they love me for who they want me to be?
Do they love me because they hope it’s a phase?
Do they love me to put on a show?

Maybe it would’ve been easier if I was “normal.”

But I can assure you

You are enough

and

You are loved

and

You are valuable

and

You are worthy

and

You are normal

more than that

You are extraordinary

and

You are courageous

and smart

You are beautiful

and

Simply Perfect
