You are enough
and you are more.
You are more
than the money that you cannot spend
and the things that you cannot afford.
The clothes and masks sold in stores
do not seek out to make you feel beautiful.
They want to disguise you
and cover you up.
They sell make-up designed to cover your scars
and the color of your skin.
Companies are funded by drawing your attention
away from the beauty that can be found within.
Businesses only seek out to draw your attention
away from your inner self;
as if confidence was something that you could buy on a shelf.
Combating stereotypes and expectations
just by breathing,
just by thinking for yourself.
Breaking rules just by succeeding.
Flourishing from mud.
Blooming out of darkness.
Unaffected by lost blood.
The story here is for you.
Acknowledge the identity that lives inside of you.
Embrace the bitch.
Embrace the limitless power
that you have inside of your mind
and through your fingertips.
Your feminine energy
and magic exists
through all things.
Feel it around you.
Find it within yourself.
Become tall and fruitful.
Do not be afraid to let go.
Do not be afraid to take up space.
Let life mirror your own feminine bliss.
