how you fought your way out of their words
how you taught your eyes to look away
how you held the light in your mouth
how you chose to grow kindness
all the courage that lives in your hands, all the fear
that you stand on every day
you are a tree called beauty, strong
you are branches
flung wide open, filled

For you who longs to be seen.
You are enough.
