Be You

Focus on What You Are Not What You Aren't

'But are you?' My conscious asked after I screamed at myself telling myself I am a fuck up.

Convincing myself I am a failure.

But am I?

'You are not.' 

I am. 'No. I wouldn’t say you are.' 

Then what am I

 'A friend,

a daughter,

an aunt,

a lover,

a poet,

a caregiver,

an inspiration,





the sun when it sets and the moon when it rises.

You are… human.' 

Am I? 

'You are'

I am.
