you are enough.

you are not failure.
you are not sin.
you are not your mistakes.
you are not what you did yesterday,
what you did today,
nor what you’ll do tomorrow.
you are not people’s words,
you are not people’s thoughts,
you are not what they say you will be.
you are your dreams,
you are what makes you smile
you are the words on your favorite book
you are the lyrics stuck in your head
you are the desires of your heart
and the words you write down
and you are beauty and you are hope
and you are life and you are a song
and you are forgiven and you are redeemed
and you are loved and you are bright
and you are wonderful and you are enough.
