It’s time to wake up to your own worth.
I’m talking to YOU.
The ones that know the strength of their
Soul is enough to crush the limits our weak
The ones that have known suffering..
Grief, addiction, heartbreak.
The ones that grew with trauma as an ally
and knew no friend as close to them as
their own hurt.
To the ones that think they are ordinary,
but couldn’t be any farther from it.
To the ones that bend their bones to help
another feel safe in their own skin.
To the ones that fight to survive,
in silence, in solitude.
I see you.
And you are stunning in all that you are.
You don’t see those wings beating behind
your back but you can hear them drumming
to the pace of your heart.
Beat them harder.
I have learnt that people think they are
That they will do anything to hide the
beauty inside them.
Completely oblivious to their radiance.
You are a world all of your own.
Every experience you’ve ever had is an
Every lesson you’ve learned could grow
Every flutter of your eyelashes creates
ripples in this Universe and every time
you exhale, you breathe a stardust all of
it’s own into existence.
It might take a lifetime to recover, but
what better way to spend our remaining
Stop looking outside of yourself.
Face the truth of who you really are
Warrior Soul and RISE.
