Pour grace over yourself.

if the child

deep within

your skin

is weeping,

sit with her

in sorrow.

rub kindness into

her wounds.

sing love

over her fears.

this,

is how you will

both

heal.

—pour grace over yourself.

Honour yourself. Unlearn who you are not.

when you find

the ancient song

in your bones,

but you were only taught

to speak

in thunder.

you

must

unlearn

this.

sing,

or you will

slowly die,

every

day

of your life.

—honour yourself. be true to yourself. unlearn who you are not.

What we all need.

And isn’t this what every, single heart needs to know—needs to hear?

That we are wanted?

That we matter *so much* that if we were not here, there would be a gaping hole in the universe.

Tell the ones that you hold in your heart, that they are wanted.

Tell them over, and over, so that they will never forget.

And know this one thing—you are too.

would you tell

me,

just one more time,

that

i am wanted.

—what we all need.

Letting go.

i hung

my broken dreams

on the stars.

one

by

one,

i set them

free.

and now,

here I stand,

empty hands cupped,

waiting for

the new rain.

—letting go.

I want to speak the world beautiful.

i want to eat

beauty,

so that my words

will have the

fragrance of

hope

on them.

—i want to speak the world beautiful.
